Course Objectives The main objective is to provide the basic concepts in pharmacology and toxicology and mechanisms and actions of toxic compounds in the body. the analytical thinking skills of the students. Therefore students will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills and will enhance their cyclo-motor skills on the application of the organic chemistry synthesis and applications by laboratory practices
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Reminding the general knowledge about biomolecules such as carbonhydrate, lipid and protein
Course Content A molecular approach to pharmacology, drug receptor interactions, dose-response and structure activity relationships (drug administration, transference, metabolism and excretion).
