Pharmacology is a research discipline applying a set of principles and methods to study mode of action of drugs in biological systems.
The goal of this course is to expose students to a variety of cutting-edge research topics in basic and applied pharmacological research. Through this course students will be trained and prepared for careers in research and development (R&D) in pharmaceutical industry, academic and research institutions, governmental and other healthcare agencies.
Topics encompass a number of different areas in modern pharmacology such as molecular pharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, gastrointestinal pharmacology, respiratory tract pharmacology, urogenital tract pharmacology, pharmacology of tissue repair, neuropharmacology, psychopharmacology, Immunopharmacology, pharmacology of aging, paediatric pharmacology, and latest developments in drug delivery.
This course consists of formal lectures given by faculty members and visiting lecturers from academia and industry; research seminars or workshops; interactive in-class discussions; literature-based projects; and student seminars on various properties and effects of newer drugs in form of oral presentations or written reports.
Research projects on current pharmacological research, new drug and delivery developments and re- evaluation of currently employed drugs, their mechanism of action, etc. will be introduced, followed by group discussions on PBL exercises.
Small lab visits can be arranged to provide students a direct research experience in a chosen area.
