Pharmaceutical Biology and Pharmacology

Profile :
The Pharmaceutical Biology Laboratory is located on the 2nd floor of the Integrated Laboratory, Campus 3 of UAD. The laboratory manages education, teaching, research and scientific development related to pharmacology, toxicology, pharmacognosy, analysis of traditional medicine, phytochemistry and microbiology. The laboratory manages 2 laboratory units, namely:

  1. Pharmaceutical Biology Laboratory

The Pharmaceutical Biology Laboratory is a laboratory for Pharmacognosy, Phytochemistry, Traditional Medicine Analysis and Microbiology Practicums. Apart from that, the laboratory is also used for research activities related to the development of medicinal substances from plants/ animals/ microorganisms that play a role in the prevention, maintenance and therapy of a disease. Practicums and research activities that can be carried out in this laboratory are:

  • Identification of medicinal plants, both macroscopic and microscopic,
  • Extract creation,
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis of bioactive compounds in medicinal plants,
  • Microbiological testing and biotechnological application techniques in the pharmaceutical field.

2. Pharmacology Laboratory

The Pharmacology and Toxicology Laboratory is a laboratory for Pharmacology practicum activities and pre-clinical research on pharmacological effects, toxic effects and pharmacokinetics of drugs/ medicinal substances from plants or animals using test animals such as mice, guinea pigs or rabbits. Practicum and research activities that can be carried out in this laboratory include:

  • Analgesic test
  • Anti-inflammatory test
  • Antipyretic test
  • anti-diarrheal and laxative tests
  • hepatoprotective effect test
  • Anti-diabetic test
  • Anti-hypercholesterolemic test
  • Anti-cancer test
  • Anti-hypertensive test
  • Anti-dementia test
  • Typical and atypical toxicity test
  • determination of the pharmacokinetic profile of a drug/ drug substance
