PCEUT 499 Undergraduate Research (1-6, max. 12)
Research problems in drug disposition, drug targeting, and drug development. Prerequisite: cumulative GPA of 2.50 and permission of instructor.
PCEUT 501 Advanced Pharmacokinetics I (5) Lin, Unadkat
Drug absorption, distribution, excretion, metabolism, and effects in mammalian systems. Compartmental and physiologically-based pharmacokinetic models as well as non-compartmental approaches examined. Drug disposition studied in a physiologically realistic context taking nonlinear events into account. Aimed at development of innovative methods for data analysis (including population pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models) and evaluation in biological systems. Prerequisite: PCEUT 506 or permission of instructor.
Instructor Course Description: Jashvant D Unadkat
PCEUT 502 Pharmacokinetics of Drug Metabolism (4) Kunze, Levy, Thummel
Advanced study of drug metabolism pharmacokinetics. Topics emphasize linear and nonlinear metabolic clearance kinetics, metabolite kinetics, in vitro-in vivo predictions, and drug-drug interaction kinetics. Prerequisite: PCEUT 506 or permission of instructor.
PCEUT 503 Drug Transport and Delivery (5) Ho, Hu, Mao, Shen, Unadkat, Wang
Provides advance knowledge of the physico-chemical and biological concepts underlying in vivo transport and delivery of drugs. Prerequisite: PCEUT 506.
PCEUT 506 Pharmacokinetic Principles (6) Isoherranen
Covers the fundamentals of pharmacokinetics. Includes lectures and laboratory exercises on the key concepts in pharmacokinetics, including compartmental kinetics, clearance, protein binding, bioavailability, pharmacodynamics, clinical pharmacokinentics, and Michaelis-Menten kinetics.
Instructor Course Description: Danny D Shen
PCEUT 510 Drug Interactions (3) Collins, Horn, Shen, Thummel
Covers common pharmacokinetic mechanisms underlying clinically important interactions between drugs, and patient- and drug-related factors that predispose a patient to adverse drug effects. Includes case-based discussion of approaches to identification, clinical evaluation, and clinical management of drug-drug interaction risk. Prerequisite: PHARM 560; PHARM 561; PHARM 563; and PHARM 564.
PCEUT 513 Basic Concepts in Pharmacogenetics and Toxicogenomics (3) Eaton, Thummel
Addresses current DNA sequencing and genotyping approaches, and basic concepts of pharmacogenetics and toxicogenomics. Emphasis placed on applications of genomic technologies to the understanding of "gene-environment interactions" that cause diseases of public health importance, including cancer, chronic neurological diseases, and adverse drug reactions. Offered: jointly with ENV H 513/PHG 513.

Physiochemical principles involved in formulating stable dosage forms suitable for human administration. Hands-on laboratory experience with formulating extemporaneous preparations routinely encountered in community and hospital pharmacies. Routes of drug administration.
PCEUT 532 P-Clinical Pharmacokinetics (4) Anderson, Isoherranen, Unadkat, Wang
Covers basic principles of pharmacokinetics and their application to the clinical setting, including: single-dose intravenous and oral kinetics, multiple dosing, nonlinear pharmacokinetics, metabolite kinetics, pharmacogenetics, and the role of disease in drug clearance and dose requirements, and kinetics of drug-drug interactions. Prerequisite: PCEUT 531.
PCEUT 533 P-Biopharmaceutics, Drug Delivery and Therapeutic Resonse (4) Ho
Covers basic principles of biopharmaceutics drug delivery, and therapeutic response and their application to traditional and biotherapeutics, including oral and non-oral route of drug administration. Includes fundamental principles related to assessment of bioavailability and bioequivalence, drug-drug, and food-drug interactions and genetic basis for oral or parenteral drugs. Prerequisite: PCEUT 532. Offered: Sp.
