This course outlines basic molecular and cellular concepts of modern pharmacology and toxicology. Molecular pharmacology is concerned with the development, design, structure and action of drugs and their effects on biological systems. Toxicology is the scientific study of poisons and their action, as well as the investigation of drug-induced side effects. Pharmacological agents and toxins are also routinely used as analytical and investigative tools for the assessment of biomolecular or pathophysiological processes. In this module, various classes of drugs and toxins will be presented in the context of their biological effects in therapy and cytotoxicity.
This module is capped at 68 students.
