Program description

Pharmacology and Toxicology

Pharmacology and Toxicology are research topics that investigate the mechanisms of interaction of substances and medicaments with biological systems and tracking their positive and negative consequences for the organism. The final goal is to use this knowledge in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human and animal diseases. Research subject encompasses the study of both processes from the molecular level to affect the entire body and also research into clinical practice in patients.

The determination of the latest research methods allow for interdisciplinary research at the receptor level, mesenger systems and transmission of genetic information. Created new disciplines such as pharmaco-biochemistry, pharmaco-genetics, pharmaco-economy and others.

The big advantage of pharmacology and toxicology studies is a close connection of the theoretical field with all the clinical fields that perform the treatment, prevention and diagnostic. Study program in pharmacology and toxicology is therefore suitable not only for those interested in experimental research, but also for those who plan their clinical work in the future.

The study program is carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Experimental Medicine, the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Institute of Physiology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
