CHE 351 - Topics in Organic Chemistry:Pharmacology

N. Snyder, E. Stevens

In pharmacology we will discuss how different drugs (natural and synthetic) function by examining the mechanisms through which they act. General topics will include drug receptors, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and toxicology. In addition, an overview of the different classes of drugs, their structure/function and mechanisms of action will be discussed. Drug classes will include drugs that are used treat inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, drugs that act on the nervous system, drugs that are used to treat autoimmune diseases, drugs that are used during organ transplant, and drugs that are used to treat infectious diseases and malignant diseases.

Satisfies a major requirement in Chemistry.
