The discipline of pharmacology is the study of the effects of drugs on living organisms where a drug can be broadly defined as any chemical substance, natural or synthetic, which affects a biological system. Pharmacology may involve how organisms handle drugs, mechanism of drug action, drug toxicity, the use of drugs as probes to delineate biological processes during health and disease, identification of new targets for drug action, and the design and development of new drugs. These investigations can occur at the molecular, sub cellular, cellular, tissue or whole organism level. Pharmacology is an interdisciplinary science employing experimental approaches that may include biochemistry, physiology, immunology, molecular biology, genetics and cell biology. Department of Pharmacology addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
The Department of Pharmacology provides courses at different levels of B.Pharmacy as
* Human Anatomy and Physiology (Istyear B. Pharm.)
* Pathophysiology (IInd year B. Pharm.)
* Pharmacology (II and IIIrd year B. Pharm.)
* Clinical Pharmacy (Final year B. Pharm.)
The objective of courses is to cope with the fundamental principles and knowledge of the structure and functions of the human body along with on the mechanism of diseases. The course envisages identification of disease relevant targets (receptors) for drug action; select the chemicals best suited to manipulate each target and understand in detail the consequences of the drug actions. The course is also aimed at introduction of functions necessary to discharge a set of social responsibility related to therapeutic drug use. The concept of ‘Patient Oriented' in addition to ‘Product Oriented' approach is envisaged.
