Pharmacology Lecture

Research room overview

Using “relief from pain” as a key word, we have studied to reveal the pain control system and mechanism of tolerance and dependence development caused by opioids.  Recently, we have developed research with themes of “involvement of neuroinflammation in the pathology of neuropathic pain,” “evaluation of the physiological function of nicotine and its therapeutic application to diseases,” and “clarifications of tolerance and dependence development caused by addictive drugs.”

Education overview

We provide primary knowledge of the in-vitro mechanism of drugs, including “mechanism at individual cell level” and “factors affecting efficacy.”  We provide education aiming to train healthcare professionals who fully understand and apply the pharmacology and adverse effects of drugs used to treat, diagnose, and prevent.
