It's my pleasure to welcome you to UP and the Department of Pharmacology. The Department comprises of a dynamic, passionate and thriving community, with a committed group of staff members, researchers and students. The members of this community consist of people with different and diverse background with our main aim to nurture excellence and provide you with a memorable learning experience that will enable you to become an independent thinker, ready to pursue your chosen career path. 

We are at the start of 2024 and with this I would encourage you to make your health and wellbeing a priority throughout the academic year. Take the time to get to know your fellow students, get involved with the different social activities that the Department and University has to offer.

The Department has started its very own in house applied research methods course, and we urge you as a new postgraduate student to take advantage of the opportunities the course can offer you.

We have also started our own social media pages, and you can find and follow us on Instagram -
