Pharmacology(Tezpur Campus)

Pharmacology is the scientific study of how drugs interact with living systems. It is a branch of biomedical science that focuses on the discovery, development, and evaluation of drugs and their effects on biological systems. Pharmacology encompasses a broad range of topics, including drug discovery and development, pharmacokinetics (how drugs are absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and excreted by the body), pharmacodynamics (how drugs produce their effects on the body), toxicology (the study of harmful effects of drugs), and clinical pharmacology (the study of how drugs are used in the treatment of diseases). The ultimate goal of pharmacology is to develop safe and effective drugs that can be used to treat or prevent diseases. Pharmacology is essential for pharmacy students to have a strong foundation in pharmacology for several reasons, including understanding drug actions and interactions, promoting rational drug use, advancing drug discovery and development, improving patient outcomes, enhancing interprofessional collaboration. In summary, studying pharmacology is essential for developing safe and effective drugs, optimizing drug therapy, and improving public health.
