Welcome to the Discipline of Pharmacology and Therapeutics

Pharmacology can be described as the study of drugs and their effects on biological organisms. We are actively involved in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the College of Science as well as in the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (COMNHS). We are also active in research in the areas of neuroscience, inflammation, cancer biology, cardiovascular development and endocrinology.
