Department of Pharmacology

The Department of Pharmacology at JKKN College of Pharmacy plays a vital role in the field of pharmacy profession, serving as the backbone with a wide scope of influence. With a focus on research and the development of new molecules from synthetic and natural sources, pharmacology holds significant importance.

The Pharmacology post-graduate program was established in August 2009, initially admitting ten students. The department boasts state-of-the-art instruments that facilitate the screening of various techniques and grants access to databases containing the latest pharmacological journals and simulated experiments.

An integral part of the department’s infrastructure is its approved animal house, which operates under the supervision of the Institutional Animal Ethical Committee registered with CPCSEA (Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experimental Animals). This ensures adherence to ethical guidelines and the responsible use of animals in research.

Both post-graduate and research students actively engage in the screening of samples to assess their pharmacological activities. The department provides opportunities for studying the actions of known drugs on isolated and in vivo models through undergraduate and post-graduate programs. This comprehensive approach enables students to gain practical insights into drug mechanisms and their effects on biological systems.

At JKKN College of Pharmacy, the Department of Pharmacology fosters a culture of innovation and exploration. Students are encouraged to contribute to the advancement of pharmacological research through their active involvement in experiments and projects. The department’s commitment to continuous learning and research creates an environment where students can explore new avenues, broaden their knowledge, and develop critical skills in pharmacological sciences.
