Pharmacology

    Overview

    Some drugs save lives, some drugs destroy lives, and some drugs do almost nothing. Pharmacology is the study of the interaction between drugs and humans (and other animals) – it's how we find  out what works, and what doesn’t.

    You can choose a research project that could contribute to major advances in the treatment of diabetes, heart attack, asthma, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and many other ailments affecting humans. Maybe you’ll be inspired to set off on a research path in this $1 trillion industry. Or maybe your new-found knowledge will take you elsewhere, into business or government.

    You’ll be studying in the heart of Australia’s pharmaceutical industry, so look out for opportunities to connect with the many companies and institutes in our neighbourhood located nearby.

    You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or the Bachelor of Science
