I know some of you are involved in the life sciences.
Expected grad date is next Spring, so I’m looking at graduate programs.
The first one I came across that was interesting was pharmacology.
Then as I read more I came across the next two in the title.
These are probably not going to do justice as descriptors, but from what I’ve been able to gather, pharmacology is more about the interactions within living organisms, pharmaceutical science is the development and testing, and medicinal chemistry is like creating potential drug candidates that get passed on to the other two.
Seems like there’s some overlap, but I’m having a hard time discerning the differences, so I’m reaching out for some input from anyone that might have experience. I think Aragorn has mentioned he’s a biochemist, and some other people as well (not sure of names).
Anyway, if anyone can share what they know, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
