What is pharmacology? How are drugs discovered? How do they work? How is it determined whether a drug is safe and effective? In this course, we explore these questions, at molecular, cellular and systems levels, by looking at drugs that target key genes/pathways in several major organs/systems or diseases, including neurological, cardiovascular, endocrine, pulmonary, and infectious microbes/viruses.
