About Pharmacology and Biotechnology at Sheffield Hallam University

Biotechnology and biomedical research have experienced a revolution with the development of gene manipulation. Biotechnology provides us with therapeutic proteins from cloned genes for example insulin, growth hormone and tissue plasminogen activator, a protein which helps to dissolve blood clots in treating thrombosis and myocardial infarction. The discovery of the molecular basis of genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and cancer is helping the design of treatments including gene therapy. Also, the discovery of new types of molecules promises new treatments for many diseases including chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma. A detailed knowledge of the structure and role of molecules involved in neurotransmission is allowing the development of a new generation of more specific and effective drugs for various neurological disorders. Many diseases, however, still need to be conquered. Developments in pharmacology, particularly using biotechnology, promise new and more effective treatments. This course gives you advanced education and training in current molecular and cell biology, and therapeutic rationales for treatment. We emphasise the use of cellular models to study drug actions and applying biotechnology to pharmacology. You can take course modules individually as short courses.
