Emphasis is mainly on biological, rather than chemical, processes. You’ll examine the action of drugs at their target sites, such as major organs and systems, and the body’s reactions. You’ll study the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases, drugs acting on the brain and peripheral nervous system (e.g. antidepressants and analgesics), new drugs to treat brain diseases, and drug abuse.
