Advances in biomedical sciences are often based on the development of new drugs which improve and save the lives of millions of patients. Drugs with specific biochemical actions are also powerful research tools. They provide pharmacologists and other biomedical scientists unique research opportunities which help to elucidate cellular signaling cascades. Students of the program will develop expertise in the fundamentals of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology. They will be able to solve a variety of problems in basic biomedical sciences involving the design of research strategies for the discovery of novel drugs or gene therapy approaches.
In the last 70 years, the development of clinical cancer research has been remarkable. From the discovery of the first form of effective chemotherapy in 1949 to the genetically tailored cancer drugs of the 90s, treatment methods have evolved dramatically in the modern era thanks to decades of rigorous clinical trials.
With the help of some of the world’s leading oncologists and cancer treatment specialists we’ve decided to produce a timeline which outlines 10 of the most important advances in clinical cancer.
"I use Clinical Pharmacology every day to deliver reliable drug information to my healthcare colleagues and patients efficiently. I love the fact that it always provides answers to my questions at my fingertips, no matter where I am. Clinical Pharmacology is comprehensive, easy to use, and up to date, and because it uses the most accurate resources and literature to substantiate its findings, I trust the content."
