Details of the M. Pharm - Pharmacology Programme

Pharmacology is a major subject in drug discovery. It deals with the research, discovery, and characterization of chemicals which show biological effects and the elucidation of cellular and organismal function in relation to these chemicals. Area of research involves Oncology, fertility, infertility, anti-fertility, diabetes, Obesity and cell line based molecular research, CNS disorders including stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, drug abuse, and cardiovascular complications. Efforts are being made to develop animal models of mentioned disorders and NCEs including synthetic, semi-synthetic and herbals are evaluated for efficacy. Further investigations are done on safety and toxicity parameters.

Programme Focus:

Master in Pharmacology is of four semester regular course. Major subjects involves: Research Methodology & Pharmacological Screening, Modern Analytical Techniques, General Principles of Pharmacology & Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacology of ANS, CNS,CVS, Endocrine & haemopoietic System, Modern Pharmacology of Autocoids, GIT, Respiratory system & Chemotherapy, Pharmacological Screening & Bioassay, Pharmacology of Drugs for Special Population, Dermal & Ocular System, Drug Interactions, Toxicology & Immunology, Molecular Pharmacology, Drug Regulatory Affairs, Intellectual Property Rights & Bioethics, Pharmaceutical Biostatistics & Computer Applications. Students will be trained in handling of various equipments and developing of screening animal models. Laboratory includes: Analytical Techniques Lab, Pharmacological Screening Lab, General Pharmacology Lab, Pharmacology Screening Lab, and Molecular Pharmacology Lab. In addition to this special emphasis is for Behavioral Science, Communication Skills, Foreign Language (French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Chinese). Students are motivated and advised to find interest in respective area of research from start of semester. During course of time students are suggested to give presentations on area indentified and work plan. One year is fully dedicated to research work and possible outcome will be patent, publications, thesis or dissertation etc.
