Pharmacology is the science concerned with all aspects of the action of drugs and other chemicals on living systems. Its primary aim is the discovery of chemical mechanisms, by which cellular and molecular functions are regulated for the purpose of understanding how existing drugs act and to develop new drugs for treatment and diagnosis of diseases. The broad scope of interests of pharmacology ranges from the study of intermolecular reactions of chemical constituents of cells with drugs to effects of chemicals in our environment on entire populations.
In addition to courses in pharmacology, the student of the Medical Pharmacology - Perfusion program from The University of Arizona may add courses in a variety of disciplines such as cancer biology, cell biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, physiology, immunology, medicinal chemistry, law and business.
Each student will have the opportunity in their first year to obtain first-hand research experience in at least three laboratories of their choosing. This exposure will form the basis upon which the student will choose a mentor and an area of research for the their thesis research project.
Professional pharmacologists tend toward careers in basic reearch and teaching in academia, research in pharmaceutical or biotech companies, research institues or government agencies.
