The departmental activities include organizing national and international scientific programs, newsletters, webinars, collaborative research, MOU with Industries, publications in reputed Journals/​conferences, etc. 

Every year the department attracts ample students for higher education and encourages them to build a foundation for further research activities in pharmacological sciences. The laboratories are well-designed with all safety measures and provide facilities for the students to carry out all types of basic pharmacological in-vivo and in--vitro screening. Laboratories are also supported by simulation software for demonstration of in-silico pharmacological experiments. The laboratory enables students to become experts in animal handling and conduct skillful pharmacology research. After successful completion of research activities, the students are exposed to the publication of their research works in journals and other international scientific meets.
