PHCH 725 Cellular and Molecular Pharmaceutics
The pharmaceutical relevance of fundamental and advanced concepts in cell biology and the molecular interactions responsible for cell and tissue functions, homeostasis in health and disease will be presented. Current analytical methods for examining cells and tissues, and molecular components important in understanding drug and protein biodistribution and metabolism will be discussed. Discussion topics will include the chemical and physical properties of small molecules, proteins, nucleic acids and lipids and their impact on cellular and subcellular structures and ultimately of either adverse or therapeutic benefit. (Same as C&PE 725.) Prerequisite: Graduate standing or consent of instructor.
