Chairman: Dr. Rafeeq Alam Khan (Meritorious Professor)
The Department of Pharmacology is one of the important Departments of the Faculty of Pharmacy since 1973, not only sharing a major load at the under graduate level but also preparing students to fill the gap by suitably qualified manpower in the field of Pharmacy at Post graduate levels. The expansion of the Department and graduate programs in the areas of modern pharmacology including Neuropharmacology, Toxicology and Biochemical Pharmacology is expected to place the Department among high research ranking Departments of the University.
The major academic objectives of the Department are to facilitate Basic and Applied Research, educate under graduate, graduate and professional students in various disciplines and provide academic excellence. Department of Pharmacology has so far produced the highest number of PhDs in the faculty of Pharmacy and a large number of M. Phil and M. Pharm. The Department is composed of highly competent primary faculty, research faculty, graduate students and technical support staff.
