Pharmaceutical companies continue to face a growing need for scientists trained in the basics of pharmacology. At GlaxoSmithKline, a pharmaceuticals world-leader, Terry Kenakin regularly teaches this course and has drawn on his valuable experience to write "A Pharmacology Primer". This guide has been designed especially for scientists trained in molecular biology and related fields who now need to know the basic theories, principles and practical applications of pharmacology. Important chapters cover: Drug Receptor Theory; Drug Antagonism; the Drug Discovery Process; Pharmacological Assay Formats; Statistics and Experimental Design; and many more! "A Pharmacology Primer" is stocked with helpful resources - derivations of all formulae in every chapter, a glossary and appendices, scores of full-color illustrations - that further enhance the value and utility of this book. There are 185 illustrations and figures, four-color throughout. Bulleted lists at the end of each section sum up main topics. Glossary of Pharmacological Terms is included for quick reference.

Review quote

"This book is an excellent introduction to pharmacological theory. I wish I had a copy to study for my PhD candidacy examination! The book follows a very logical, step-by-step approach to describe pharmacological theory. I loved the quotes at each chapter's heading. It is always nice to look at the Human aspects & philosophy of scientific endeavor. This book should be required reading for biomedical sciences students in general, but specially for pharmacology students." Review from The Science Advisory Board (orpagan)
