More about the course

The study of pharmacology and toxicology are of great importance. On one hand pharmacology is the study of drugs, toxicology on the other hand studies the adverse effects of drugs on humans and other living systems. Toxicology also aims to eliminate those adverse effects so as to improve the effectiveness of the drugs and medications. The main aim of the study is to understand the various properties of drugs and their effect on living systems, the interactions between the drug receptors and the molecules of drug. Among other things you will be learning about the differences in the two fields of pharmacology and toxicology.
