Course Description: This course examines the interactions of drugs with receptors, enzymes, and other molecules in the body to show how this can be useful in the treatment of diseases such as cancer, hypertension, asthma, and depression. Drugs of abuse, such as heroin, are also discussed, along with the regulation of prescription and over-the-counter medications. This course also explores the processes that lead to removal of drugs from the body, an important consideration that decides the dose and frequency of drug administration. The importance of person-to-person genetic variation to drug responses is also examined. Students conduct pharmacological experiments; analyze and present their own data; apply pharmacological approaches to problem solving; participate effectively in group work; make use of IT resources in data presentation; and apply quantitative analysis to data.
