PHS 758 - Advanced Cardiovascular Pharmacology

This elective course delivers an in-depth discussion on the pharmacological mechanics of cardiovascular system in artery, vein, heart and kidney. Cardiovascular disorders related to the circulatory system including the neuronal and hormonal regulations will be discussed as a platform to understand current and future molecular/cellular research in pharmacology. The course will also explore the limitations of our current pharmacological options in cardiovascular diseases, such as in polycystic kidney disease. To understand future pharmacological research and intervention, advanced topics in heart and vascular biology will be discussed based on the scientific theories, rationales, and hypotheses from the most recent research articles. (Offered as needed.) 2 credits
