Safety Pharmacology (Safety Pharmacology)
Owner/Developer: Helmholtz Zentrum München & German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (HMGU & DGPT)
In 1979, the then existing toxicology section of the German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology launched its DGPT toxicology qualification program to promote the education and training of young people in toxicology. It offers theoretical training in all areas of the discipline of toxicology.
The aim of the program is to impart skills and knowledge according to DGPT toxicology training guidelines.
The course in Safety Pharmacology is part of the toxicology program at HMGU. This course is intended to provide a unique overview of an important discipline in pharmaceutical industry. The participant will have an understanding of the various test systems used and the integration of Safety Pharmacology in the drug development process.
