The discipline of pharmacology is concerned with all aspects of the effects of drugs and chemicals on living systems. The field ranges from investigations at the molecular level to population studies on a global level. Drug development and evaluation make up an important part of pharmacology, but the field also includes the use of drugs as tools to probe the functions of macromolecules, cells, organs and even whole animals, and investigation of the harmful effects of chemicals on cells, organs and animals (toxicology). The breadth of interests encompassed by pharmacology provides excellent opportunities for individuals with strong interests and training in biology or chemistry to apply their knowledge to the understanding of fundamental biological processes.
