Revolutionise the way we use existing drugs and develop new medicines to help prevent and combat disease.
Study pharmacology to learn the science behind how drugs work to treat and cure diseases.
You’ll gain comprehensive knowledge on how drugs work in the human body at the molecular, cellular and whole-body level, and discover why many drugs do not work in every patient.
You'll learn how active chemical agents in medicines affect our cells, tissue or organs to examine their benefits, side effects and interactions on human health. And you'll be taught the latest techniques to test drug effects and how to evaluate their benefits and risks in treating human diseases.
Gain vital research experience while you study by contributing to projects that could lead to new medical breakthroughs.
A minor in pharmacology will prepare you for employment and research opportunities within healthcare organisations, medical research institutions, pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies, universities and hospitals.
