Human Ageing and Pharmacology

2018-04-17T10:12:55+00:00

   Human Ageing and Pharmacology Pharmacology is the study of modern medicines and medical advances. Not known for much practical use, as most advancements are halted in their infancy or bear too great a cost to develop for mass use, pharmacology does have its benefits. The development of cutting-edge medical advancements owes the study of pharmacology for its very existence. One new development being made by the Buck Institute is a particularly good example. Molecular Advances  Scientists and researchers at the Buck Institute in the USA (you can visit their website here) have been involved in biochemistry and pharmacology for many years, [...]
