Pharmacology is the study of drugs and their interactions with specific targets (receptors) and signaling pathways in human and other species. By studying the biochemical reactions underlying both the therapeutic and adverse effects of drugs, pharmacologists hope to unravel mysteries of physiology and pathophysiology, with the ultimate goal of identifying safer and more effective treatments for discomfort and disease.
