Oggetto:

Sommario insegnamento

Oggetto:

Obiettivi formativi

Pharmacology
Learning the general principles of pharmacodynamics and the analysis of the main transmission systems.

Toxicology
The course aims to provide students with knowledge of the basic principles of toxicology and the mechanisms of toxic action of xenobiotics.

 

Oggetto:

Risultati dell'apprendimento attesi

Pharmacology
At the end of the course the student acquires the fundamental mechanisms that regulate cellular pharmacology,the main factors responsible for variability in drug response and   the mecchanism of action of drugs active on the main neurotransmission systems.

Toxicology
At the end of the course the student acquires knowledge useful for the integrated understanding of the phenomena at biochemical, cellular, molecular, pathophysiological level that underlie the toxicity of a drug or a xenobiotic one; it includes the ways in which a toxic person can come into contact with biological material, the effects of certain organs and systems following exposure, as a cause of both acute and chronic diseases. It also achieves a scientific preparation useful for dealing with issues related to the risk assessment from exposure to chemical agents.

Modalità di insegnamento


The Pharmacology module of Prof. Eva C. and Dott. Bertocchi I. (4CFU) consists of 32 hours.
The Toxicology module of Prof. De Francia S. (2CFU) consists of 16 hours.

The course is taught in English through frontal lesson. Given the current pandemic situation, the remote mode (Webex or Big Blu ButtonBN) is ensured throughout the academic year. Students for this purpose will receive a webex meeting invitation via email, or they will find the Big Blu ButtonBN activity for the connection on Moodle.

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento

The exam will be in written form with an open question for each parts. Students have 60 minutes to complete the test.

The final mark is given by the weighted average with respect to the credits of each parts.

The learning verification methods may vary according to the limitations imposed by the current health crisis. In any case, the remote mode is guaranteed for the entire academic year.
