Pharmacology is the scientific discipline that, in the attempt to improve health and alleviate disease, studies the mechanisms by which drugs alter biological systems. Toxicology is the study of mechanisms by which drugs and chemicals in the environment produce unwanted effects. Together these disciplines encompass the molecular basis of drug action, the actions of drugs on cells, organs, and organisms, genetic variations in drug action, and drug discovery.

The Department of Pharmacology offers teaching and training in pharmacology and toxicology to both undergraduate and post graduate students, who may subsequently go on to exciting research, regulatory and administrative careers in academic, and industrial and healthcare provision settings. In this direction, the department goal is to prepare exceptional students for productive and successful careers in pharmaceutical industry, academia, research and public sectors. The department has centralized animal house approved by CPCSEA (Registration no: 1426/PO/Re/S/2006/CPCSEA) for conducting experiments on Mice, Rats, Guinea Pigs, and Rabbits experimental area is equipped with sophisticated digital instruments for preclinical and toxicological research. 

Department of Pharmacology has two well equipped and furnished laboratories include Human anatomy and physiology lab, Pharmacology lab, and art of infrastructure animal house facility as per CPCSEA norms.
