The course focuses on pharmacodynamic core concepts such as drug effect, mechanisms for drug impact, agonists, antagonists, drug affinity, drug selectivity and drug tolerance, pharmaceutical target, drug receptor interaction and structure-function relationship. Advanced knowledge in receptor pharmacology is the basis for future drug discoveries including drug screening, hit optimisation and compound validation.

The course includes theoretical and practical aspects of receptor pharmacology of importance to a broad spectrum of future career alternative in academia and industry.

 The course starts October 2nd and runs for 2 weeks and 3 days with full-time teaching (100%). Full-time teaching corresponds to 40 hours of study per week.
