The course aims to develop an understanding of pharmacological targeting and molecular toxicology at an advanced level. The learning outcomes are:
|First Sub Session
|15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)
The course extends your previous knowledge in the area of drug mode of action, molecular targets and toxicology. The process of drug development will be examined from the importance of understanding the design and metabolic profile of drugs and their transport to covering molecular aspects of pre-clinical toxicology. This course provides focus on hot topics in pharmacology and toxicology, using specific examples from research at the University of Aberdeen and thus opens up new opportunities for employability in academia and the pharmaceutical industry.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
There are no assessments for this course.
|To enhance understanding of the use of biomarkers in pharmacology and toxicology
|To develop knowledge of the processes involved in cell death including apoptosis, autophagy and necrosis
|To develop advanced understanding of the processes surrounding pharmacological drug design and molecular targeting using specific examples
|To gain knowledge of drug-induced toxicity and the role of drug transport
|To promote knowledge and understanding of current areas of research in pharmacology including focus on emerging areas
