Clinical pharmacology is a broad-based discipline, which bridges basic pharmacology and clinical medicine. A working knowledge of clinical pharmacology is an essential element of sound clinical and translational investigation. The application of clinical pharmacology principles to advances in contemporary medicine, e.g., targeting, gene therapy and genomics, will lead to more effective therapies and fewer adverse events. The clinical pharmacology course will provide an overview of these areas. Letter grading.
This course is open to graduate students in Track 3 (Master of Science
in Clinical Research program). Track 2 (and then Track 1) may audit
with permission of the instructor and as space permits.
