Course Offerings


Courses offered for the On-Campus Master of Science (M.S.) in Pharmacology & Toxicology


Required Core Courses

P&TX 742 Experimental Pharmacology
Experimental approaches to understanding mechanism of drug action. Use of drugs as tools to understand functioning of biological systems will also be stressed. Historically important experiments will be discussed along with experiments which are currently used to define drug mechanisms. Topics will include: dose-response, drug receptors, drug metabolism, chemotherapy as well as autonomic CNS, cardiovascular and renal pharmacology. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in Pharmacology and Toxicology Program. LEC.
