PMCOL 301 - Introduction to Research in Pharmacology

This course is designed to introduce students to pharmacological research. The project is carried out in a laboratory under the supervision of a member of the Department of Pharmacology. Laboratory projects may involve current topics and methodologies in diverse areas of Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Neuroscience or Molecular Pharmacology. Completion of this course requires a written report of the project and an oral presentation to an examining committee. Restricted to Pharmacology Honors or Specialization students in the third year of their program. There may be a limited number of spaces available. This course can also be taken as a six week Spring/Summer session course. Please contact the course coordinator for registration in the course.

PMCOL 401 - Pharmacology Tutorial

Independent research course. Hands-on experience is seen as a valuable asset for students graduating from BSc programs. With this in mind, this course provides an opportunity to work with a Faculty member on a research project during the Fall semester. The student and supervisor will mutually agree upon the details of the project. This is an excellent opportunity to learn current laboratory techniques, data analysis, laboratory notebook maintenance and presentation skills. Literature-based projects may also be available in which the student will be required to identify a research question and meet with the supervisor at regular intervals for discussion and guidance on preparation of a term paper and poster presentation. Prerequisites: PMCOL 343 and 344. Available only to students in the Pharmacology Specialization program or students who are granted consent by the Department of Pharmacology.

PMCOL 475 - Signal Transduction Systems as Pharmacological Targets

Regulation of various aspects of cell regulation, including proliferation, differentiation, metabolism, survival, motility, and gene transcription takes place via an array of well-organized signal transduction pathways. This course will cover topics related to the investigation of cellular transduction systems, and how pharmacological manipulation of these signaling pathways may be useful in the treatment of a diverse range of neurologic, neurodegenerative, inflammatory, immune, and metabolic diseases .Prerequisites: PMCOL 343 and 344 or PMCOL 371 or ZOOL 342 or consent of the instructor.

PMCOL 575 - Signal Transduction Systems as Pharmacological Targets

Regulation of various aspects of cell regulation, including proliferation, differentiation, metabolism, survival, motility, and gene transcription, occur mainly via protein phosphorylation in a complex array of well-organized signal transduction pathways. This course will cover topics related to the pharmacological investigation of cellular transduction systems, the discovery of small molecules that alter cell signaling, and how pharmacological manipulation of these signaling pathways may be useful in the drug treatment of a diverse range of diseases, including metastatic, cardiovascular, inflammatory, immune, metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases. Prerequisites: Consent of Department.
