Pharmacology is a branch of science that deals with the study of drugs and their actions on living systems, in particular, the mechanisms of drug action as well as therapeutic and other uses of the drug. Simply put, pharmacology is the study of how drugs work in the body.
Pharmacologists are medical scientists who study drug research and development. This research is used to determine safe and effective drug dosages, adverse effects, side effects, benefits, and safety. Pharmacologists can ‘translate’ such knowledge into the rational development of therapeutics. As a result of their multidisciplinary training, pharmacologists offer a unique perspective in solving drug, hormone, and chemical related problems.
