Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics
Community home page
Pharmacology is undoubtedly a cornerstone of patient management. In recent years, it has exhibited significant developments, and with the advent of the molecular and genomic eras, has extended its repertoire of tools to biotechnological drugs, designer molecules, and pharmacogenomic-based therapies. Pharmacology-inclusive careers span academic research and teaching, industrial development, and various health services including clinical health care professions, regulatory bodies, clinical laboratory services, provision of medicines and pharmaceutical-related patient counselling. Through its activities and links with various research organisations, the Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics empowers graduates in various life-science areas, with the tools necessary to understand and partake in the innovations of pharmacological developments, as well as apply this knowledge in the field of therapeutics.
