The Department is engaged in various collaborative and self supported research projects to encourage students for higher education in India. The major research domains of Pharmacology department are Pre clinical evaluation, Neuropharmacology, Herb-Drug Interactions, Toxicology and Metabolic Syndrome, Hepato protective.
Organization of various surveys in the field of Community Pharmacy is another area, which has been well explored as a part of research activity.
The quality of education as well as research work has enabled and encouraged Eighteen students from the self-supported project team to pursue further studies in different universities.
With all these assets under its belt, the Pharmacology department prepares the students so as to prove to be better pharmacologist and professionals in the field of pharmacy.
The research activities of pharmacology department are integrated with other departments and various traditional Indian Medicines (Sidha and Auyurvedic Products) are being tested scientifically.
The exact pharmacological pathways are being traced here. Apart from this research works related to anti diabatic, hepato-protective, diuretic, drugs acting on CNS (stimulants and depressants) etc., are being studied in this lab.
