Cr. 1-5. (0-3:0-6:0-9:0-12:0-15). Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
6141:6142:7141:7142:7242: Pharmacological Literature Review
Cr. 1. (1-0). Prerequisite: consent of instructor. A critical review of the literature published in pharmacology, including an analysis and appraisal of the selected publications.
Cr. 3. (3-0). An in-depth coverage of the principles of physiology of excitable cells and pathophysiology of the central and peripheral nervous systems including etiology of neurological diseases as possible target sites for therapeutic agents.
6370: Advanced Pharmacology I
Cr. 3. (3-0). Coverage of basic principles of drug action including in-depth assessments of drugs that influence the central and peripheral nervous systems and effector tissues. Specific emphases are the sites and mechanisms of drug action and current research procedures used to study those actions.
6371: Advanced Pharmacology II
Cr. 3. (3-0). An in-depth study of the site and mechanisms of actions of drugs which affect the kidneys, cardiovascular and endocrine systems, as well as current research procedures used to study those actions. Pathophysiologic states which justify the use of these agents are discussed.
6399:7399: Master's Thesis
Cr. 3. (0-9).
6451: Organ Physiology
Cr. 4. (4-0). Functions and mechanisms of various organ systems in the human body such as cardiovascular, renal, respiratory, hepatic, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive systems; pathogenic mechanisms leading to diseases such as hypertension, heart and renal failure, and target sites for drug action will be covered in detail.
6462: Cardiovascular and Renal Pharmacology
Cr. 4. (4-0). A detailed examination of the mechanisms of action of drugs which influence cardiovascular and renal function. Topics include interrelationship between fluid balance and blood pressure, natriuretic factors, contractile mechanisms in myocarduim, and vascular smooth muscle.
7297: Selected Topics in Pharmacology
Cr. 2-4 per semester. (2-0). Prerequisite: consent of instructor.

Cr. 3. (2-1). DNA structure, function and replication. RNA structure, function and translation. Control of replication and translation as sites for drug action. Cloning and PCR techniques, transgenic models to study disease and drug action, methodology and theory of gene therapy.
7350: Cellular Pharmacology
Cr. 3. (3-0). Drug-receptor theory and analysis, membrane receptors and transporters; their structure, function and regulation as it relates to drug action.
Cr. 3. (3-0). Prerequisite: consent of instructor. Physiology and pharmacology of synaptic mechanisms in the central and peripheral nervous system with emphasis on mechanisms of drug and neurotransmitter action.
7370: Scientific Writing
Cr. 3. (3-0). Prerequisite: consent of instructor. Planning, preparation and evaluation of effective research manuscripts (articles) and grant proposals in the pharmaceutical sciences.
