About this program

Pharmacology and Physiology (Research)

Pharmacology and Physiology is a research area within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences research programs (MPhil, MD, PhD).

Research study in this area involves understanding of physiological regulation and disease processes, identifying and validating novel drug targets, mechanisms of drug action.

Research themes

  • Cell signalling, especially in cancer and cardiovascular disease
  • Airway diseases
  • Smooth muscle pharmacology
  • Neurodegenerative diseases
  • Applications of chemo/bioluminescence

Areas of Expertise

Expertise includes elucidating mechanisms of drug action at all levels of organisation, from intracellular sites, membranes and cells through to tissues, organs and intact organisms.

Specific methodologies include:

  • In vivo and in vitro cardiovascular and pulmonary pharmacology,
  • Cancer therapeutics and neurogenerative diseases,
  • Enzyme purification,
  • Spectral analysis,
  • Immunoassay,
  • Radioligand binding,
  • In situ hybridisation,
  • PCR,
  • cDNA analysis,
  • Western analysis and immunoprecipitation,
  • Proteome mapping,
  • Receptor cloning,
  • Cell culture,
  • Single cell electrophysiology,
  • Live cell imaging,
  • Bioluminescence,
  • Immunocytochemistry of total and activated proteins and behavioural testing.

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the academic year. The final modules will be published by September.
