Courses

Biology 195:
Pharmacology of Multiorgan Diseases
.
This course will present the key topics and drug families covered in the regular medical pharmacology course in a condensed, hopefully humorous. but intellectually stimulating way. The emphasis will be on processes rather than on individual drugs, especially those that could lead to inflammation in different organs and their treatment.
During the course there will be opportunity to address clinical trial dsign, the placebo effect and medical ethics.

 

Pharmacology 215:
Pharmacological Techniques.

Four rotations, each lasting ten weeks, through which students gain experience in different laboratories.
These rotations are designed to familiarize students with the methodology of modern pharmacological research. Program faculty.

 

Pharmacology 210:
Medical Pharmacology.

A comprehensive survey of all the major classes of drugs, with particular emphasis on mechanisms of action. Offered each fall. Shader and program faculty.

 

Pharmacology 231:
Advanced Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology.

This course supplements the material covered in Medical Pharmacology and is taught concurrently with that course. Selected topics are discussed in detail, and students are trained to critically appraise current problems in drug design and development. Offered each fall. Shuster, Fahey, and program faculty.

Pharmacology 218:
Principles of Immunopharmacology

Appraisal of molecular mechanisms by which drugs can affect cellular processes underlying clinical syndromes such as hypersensitivity, rejection, autoimmunity, and neuroimmune disorders. Offered in alternate years. Theoharides and program faculty.
