Department of Pharmacology


The field of Pharmacology focuses upon the foundation and approaches to systems of physiology, biochemistry, molecular pharmacology, genetics and neuroscience. A primary objective of Pharmacology is to investigate fundamental aspects of molecular bio-regulatory mechanism of the cell, for the purpose of understanding how drugs act and in order to develop new drugs for treatment of disease.

This multi-faced perspective applies to the Department of Pharmacology at SJM College of Pharmacy, Chitradurga. The department offers training in pharmacology students, who may subsequently go on to exciting research, regulatory and administrative careers in academic, industrial and healthcare provision settings.
