ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Pharmacology is the study of drugs or medicine. There are two main branches of Pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics. Pharmacokinetics is defined as the study of what the body does to drugs — in other words, how drugs move around in the body, as suggested by the word ”kinetic.” Pharmacodynamics is the study of what the drugs do to the body — the mechanisms that allow a given drug to work and its general effects. The purpose of Pharmacology is to determine the effectiveness and safety of drugs designed to treat, prevent, or diagnose diseases. This includes the drug dosages, frequency of dosages, adverse effects, and how the drugs effect different populations of people.
