The course will explore the structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract and the endocrine system in greater depth than BIO1203 and BIO1206 and build upon the pharmacology introduced in BIO2118 by explaining the mechanisms of action of common pharmacological agents on the endocrine system and in the gastrointestinal tract.
