Students working in our high-spec labsPharmacology involves the study of the action of biologically active components (drugs) on the body and vice-versa.

An understanding of drugs and their actions allows us to use them safely and effectively. It is thanks to pharmacologists that you can take an aspirin when you get a headache or have an anaesthetic when the dentist gives you a filling.

Pharmacology at Newcastle focuses mainly on the way drugs exert their therapeutic effect in humans by modifying disease processes, as well as the mechanisms of toxicity associated with their use.

It provides you with a sound knowledge of pharmacology as well as the practical and core skills necessary for employment after graduation.
