A Pharmacology Primer - Theory, Applications, and Methods by Terry Kenakin

By Terry Kenakin

Pharmaceutical businesses proceed to stand a turning out to be desire for scientists proficient within the fundamentals of pharmacology. At GlaxoSmithKline, a prescription drugs world-leader, Terry Kenakin usually teaches this path and has drawn on his beneficial adventure to put in writing A Pharmacology Primer. This consultant has been designed specifically for scientists proficient in molecular biology and similar fields who now want to know the fundamental theories, ideas and sensible purposes of pharmacology.

Important chapters hide: Drug Receptor conception; Drug Antagonism; The Drug Discovery approach; Pharmacological Assay codecs; records & Experimental layout; and lots of extra!

A Pharmacology Primer is stocked with beneficial assets -- derivations of all formulae in each bankruptcy, a thesaurus and appendices, rankings of full-color illustrations -- that additional improve the worth and application of this e-book.

* 185 illustrations and figures, four-color throughout
* Bulleted lists on the finish of every part sum up major subject matters
* word list of Pharmacological phrases incorporated for speedy reference
