The research in this area focuses on advancing our understanding and minimizing the adverse effects associated with drug use and misuse.
We study the safety of medications in the real world, and mechanisms of adverse and idiosyncratic drug reactions, molecular toxicology and environmental, pathophysiological or genetic factors governing drug efficacy and safety.
We also examine the safe use of medications and explore ways to tackle the individual, societal and health system challenges related to inappropriate drug use and addiction.
