The Department of Pharmacology at our institution is committed to providing high-quality education and training in the field of drug research and development. Pharmacology is a fascinating and essential field of study that bridges the gap between pharmaceutical science and medicine. Established in 2007, the department offers undergraduate programs in Pharmacology and expanded to incorporate postgraduate courses M. Pharmacy in Pharmacology in 2019. The department is headed by Professor (Dr.) Dipankar saha along with other faculties. The department is equipped with advanced laboratories and state-of-the-art instruments such as digital stereotaxic instruments, a biochemical autoanalyzer, a haematology analyzer, an automated rotary microtome, an RT-PCR system, a gel doc system, a video-tracking system for neurobehavioral pharmacology, digital plethysmometer, BIOPAC data acquisition system for cardiovascular activity, microplate reader, and many more. These instruments are used in various experiments, research, and drug analysis, providing our students with hands-on experience with the latest technologies used in the pharmaceutical industry. Our highly experienced and qualified faculty members, along with our world-class facilities, make the department of Pharmacology an excellent choice for those seeking to pursue a career in the field of drug research and development.

The department of Pharmacology at our institution takes pride in providing the best possible facilities for conducting in-vivo (animal) experiments in a responsible and ethical manner. We have a centralized animal house that is approved by the Committee for Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CCSEA) with the registration number Reg. No 1372/PO/ReBi/S/10/CPCSEA. This approval ensures that all animal experiments are conducted in compliance with the ethical guidelines and regulations laid down by the CCSEA. The institute has the facility of Individually ventilated caging (IVC) systems for both rats and mice in place for housing the laboratory animals to reduce the possibility of contamination. The facility has an appropriate CCTV surveillance monitoring system in place.

Department research trust areas:

  1. Screening and evaluation of molecules of herbal and synthetic origin in various therapeutic areas. Our focus areas include wound healing, inflammation, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, cancer, diabetes and other metabolic disorders, neuro-degeneration and other CNS disorders, gastro-intestinal, and chronic kidney diseases.
  2. Toxicological screening of compounds/extracts and others using various animal models as per the OECD guidelines.
  3. Preclinical pharmacokinetic studies.
