Newcastle University

Pharmacology is the study of how drugs act on the human body and vice versa. It is thanks to pharmacologists that you can take an aspirin when you get a headache, or anaesthetic when you have a filling.

We introduce you to the drugs that affect major systems of the body, including the central nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine systems.

Topics include:

  • pharmacological techniques
  • toxicology
  • anticancer drugs

You’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of a wide range of drug classes. You also develop a sound understanding of the drug development process.

Study with us and you’ll:

  • train in techniques and in vivo skills that are in demand in the pharmaceutical industry and research
  • boost your CV through work experience here at the University
  • learn from experts and graduate with the latest knowledge of human health and disease
