  • Teach Pharmacology and Therapeutics to students of medical and allied disciplines
  • Independently plan and undertake research related to drugs (basic as well as Clinical Pharmacology) and communicate the findings in conferences/journals
  • Set up therapeutic drug monitoring, ADR monitoring, therapeutic audit and drug information services
  • Plan and conduct toxicity studies and clinical trials
  • Educate the public about use and misuse of drugs
  • Supervise breeding and upkeep of small laboratory animals
