Pharmacology Honours Project F - PCOL4108

Year - 2020

Pharmacology is the study of the biological actions of drugs and chemicals, their mechanisms of action and how they are used to treat illness. A supervised research project is the core activity of the Honours program and will provide training in advanced scientific methodologies and technical skills. Members of the Discipline of Pharmacology have expertise in neuropharmacology, chemical biology, cancer cell biology, pain and addiction, respiratory pharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, and clinical and experimental toxicology. The Honours project forms the basis of a thesis that is presented for examination at the end of the year. You will be expected to design and carry out experiments, to collect and analyse data, and statistically evaluate your experimental results. Your findings will be interpreted in relation to previous research in the area and the general field in which the work is relevant. On successful completion of the honours project you will also have developed generic attributes of critical thinking and research communication, as well as an in-depth advanced knowledge of your chosen research topic.
