PHRM 519S Methods in Biomedical Research 2.0 Credits

A primary goal for this course is to introduce Pharmacology & Physiology graduate students to the breadth of techniques used within the Department. Students will gain insight into not only some of the technical aspects of a variety of methods, but also how to critically examine techniques in both their own research and the literature for strengths, weaknesses and limits. At the end of the course, students should have a greater appreciation for the modalities used outside of their own labs, and an understanding of how those technologies are moving biomedical research forward.

PHRM 520S Internship in Drug Discovery and Development 4.0 Credits

The Internship in Drug Discovery and Development provides the student with a unique opportunity to apply the principles and skills learned in the classroom and acquire valuable professional experience and critical insight in a specific field. The internship is integrated into the curriculum such that it complements classroom activities and permits the student to explore an area of interest that they may ultimately pursue as a career path. Students are paired with experienced professionals who supervise their work and act as mentors and advisors. Internships can be arranged with an extensive network of pharmaceutical corporations, biotechnology companies, foundations and universities in the region as well as Drexel University itself.
