Pharmacists are the only health-care professionals with a unique knowledge of medicines starting from manufacture to their use in patients. Our mission is to offer excellent educational opportunities to undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and doctoral fellows alike. The quality of our Pharm-D program is demonstrated by the success of past graduate students. Graduates of our program currently have faculty positions at other universities, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and other organizations.
Research in the Department is currently focused on interdisciplinary approaches with a particular emphasis in phytopharmacology, where a focus is placed on the determination of biological activity of traditional herbal remedies in order to identify compounds with pharmacological activity, which can be developed as new agents in treatment of diseases.
In future we will engage in targeting specific processes that we know are involved in disease, developing treatments for an individual rather than treating every patient in the same way and never knowing who will or will not benefit. Our objective would be to improve ways to deal with those diseases continue to plague us.
We are proud of our role in the training of high-quality students which has an impact on science and technology as well as health care in our country.

It will help students to enhance their ability in oral and written communication, and their adaptability to team environments. Moreover, it will focus on imparting the knowledge and training which should enable students to harmonize theory with practice, concept with application, and problem with solution. It will prepare them to apply ably principles, practices, and processes to design, develop, deploy, and maintain drugs and instruments.
“The objectives are to provide a dynamic and diverse academic environment that promotes innovative, ground-breaking research in basic and clinical pharmacology, therapeutics and toxicology, promotes strong evidence-based teaching and training for our students in all aspects related to Pharmacology.”
