M.Pharm (Pharmacology)

Program Description
M. Pharm (Pharmacology) is a 2-year post-graduate program to provide the knowledge about how drugs act on biological systems and how the body responds to the drug.  This program caters in-depth knowledge on handling various equipment and developing animal models for screening, the molecular and cellular mechanism of action, deficiency and excess release related endocrine disorders, alternative methods for animal toxicity testing employed in drug discovery and development, and various targets for drug discovery, various lead-seeking methods and lead optimization, designing different protocols, regulations and ethical requirements for the usage of experimental animals.

B. Pharm degree examination of an Indian University established by law in India from an institution approved by Pharmacy Council of India and has scored not less than 55% of the maximum marks (aggregate of four years of B. Pharm)

Duration of Program: 2 years
