Pharmacology is the study of the interaction between drugs and living systems, particularly molecular interactions of drugs at the organ, tissue and cellular level.
Discovering new drugs and optimising their use is an important part of pharmacology, as understanding drug action is critical to improving the delivery of quality health care. 
Pharmacology combines extremely well with physiology. Together these disciplines allow interpretation of the wealth of new data generated by genomics and proteomics. 
Australian pharmacology and physiology graduates are in demand around the world.
