Development and evaluation of
The Department of Pharmacognosy was established keep abreast of the rapid developments in the knowledge and utilization of medicinal plants. There is an ever increasing acceptance for the past three decades for herbal drugs all over the world. The universal role of plants in the treatment of disease is exemplified by their employment in all the major systems of medicine. The department is involved in the protection of endangered medicinal species and the isolation of new drugs and lead compounds from traditional remedies.
Pharmacognosy is probably the oldest of the modern sciences that involves the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of natural drugs, including the search for new drugs from natural sources. The subject is one of the core branches in the pharmacy. The department enjoys the reputation of being one of the most sophisticated and well equipped department in the country. It is accredited by all the major regulatory bodies in India.
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 offers training in pharmacology and toxicology to students, who may subsequently go on to exciting research, regulatory and administrative careers in academic, 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.
Pharmacology is a subject, which connects the other disciplines of pharmaceutical sciences with medicine. This branch of science equips a student with the ability to appreciate the establishment of dose, dosage, efficacy, and safety of medicines, their mechanisms, and disposition. Pharmacology gives immense scope for exploration into diversified subdomains such as signaling and molecular mechanisms of medicines, clinical pharmacology and Biopharmaceutics, non-clinical and clinical trials. This opens up opportunities for further academic up gradation, sometimes with funded research projects of national importance supported by government funding agencies.
Department of Pharmacy Practice (DPP) was established to evolve the concept of clinical pharmacy through practice and education in India and to focus on the importance of the involvement of practicing pharmacists in patient care. Clinical Pharmacy Practice was established through a model center for the practice of clinical pharmacy. The clinical pharmacy services and other health care settings of this region achieved appreciation from the medical fraternity.
The Department has established a very good infrastructure for clinical pharmacy practice and education. The demand for trained pharmacy professionals has significantly increased in recent years due to the phenomenal growth of the health care services/ pharmaceutical industries. An ageing population, rising trends in chronic illnesses, enhanced insurance cover and higher disposable income are major contributing factors. Pharmacists are becoming more actively engaged in drug therapy decision-making and pharmaceutical care. There is a rising demand for pharmacists in a wide variety of occupational settings
