Centre for Development of Pharmacology & Toxicology

Pharmacology involves the discovery of new drugs, the investigation of how drugs work and the use of drugs to probe mechanisms of disesase. But pharmacology structures, the elucidation and manipulation of macromolecular structures, the analysis of regulatory mechanisms in cell biology and development, and the translation of this information into clinical research. Thus, the basic rsearch, through transgenic animal models, clinical investigation.

Toxicology is the scientific study of adverse effects that occur in living organisms due to chemicals. It involves observing and reporting symptoms, mechanisms, detection and treatments of toxic substances, in particular relation to the poisoning of humans. All substances have the potential to be toxic if given to living organisms in the right conditions and dose. A conventional relationship between dose and toxicity has traditionally been accepted. All substances have the potential to be toxic if given to living organisms in the right conditions and dose.
