Humans of Healthcare: The Pharmacologist 

How do we know if a drug will cause adverse reactions in a patient or if it will even work for different individuals? Understanding how drugs interact with our biological systems is crucial to ensure that the medicine that is developed is both effective and safe for us among humans. On this episode of Humans of Healthcare, we dive into the role of a pharmacologist with Prof Dr Wong Pooi Fong, from the Department of Pharmacology, at Universiti Malaya’s Faculty of Medicine.
