SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
PHARMACEUTICS

Detailed course offerings (Time Schedule) are available for

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.
MyPlan Course Details: PCEUT 501 (student access only)

PCEUT 502 Pharmacokinetics of Drug Metabolism (4) Kunze, 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. Offered: even years.
MyPlan Course Details: PCEUT 502 (student access only)

PCEUT 503 Drug Transport and Delivery (5) Ho, Hu, Mao, Shen, Unadkat, Wang

PCEUT 506 Pharmacokinetic Principles (6) Lin
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.
MyPlan Course Details: PCEUT 506 (student access only)

PCEUT 510 Drug Interactions (3) Collins, Horn, Lin, Shen
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 558; PHARM 559; PHARM 560; PHARM 561; PHARM 563; PHARM 564, and PHARM 565.
