Pharmacology is the study of drug actions on biological systems. It embraces the knowledge of the sources of drugs, chemical properties of drugs, and the biological effects and therapeutic uses of drugs. Pharmacology expands our understanding of how drugs work at the cellular and molecular level, the use of drugs as tools to dissect aspects of cell function, the formulation of clinical guidelines for the safe and effective use of drugs, and how new synthetic drugs improve on existing drugs or how to treat new human conditions.
