Pharmaceutical Sciences

The pharmaceutical sciences are a group of integrative areas of study concerned with the design, action, delivery, and disposition of drugs. They apply expertise from chemistry, inorganic, biology, physical, biochemical and analytical methods, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology), epidemiology, statistics, chemometrics, mathematics, chemical engineering, and  physics

The pharmaceutical sciences are further subdivided into several specific specialties, with 4 main branches:

Pharmacology: the course of the biochemical molecules  and physiological effects of drugs on human beings.

Pharmacodynamics: the course of the cellular and molecular interactions of drugs with their receptors. Simply "What the drug does to the body"

Pharmacokinetics: the course of the consideration that control the concentration of drug at various sites in the body. Directly "What the body does to the drug"

Pharmaceutical toxicology: the course of the harmful or toxic effects of drugs.

Pharmacogenomics: the course of the inheritance of characteristic patterns of interaction among drugs and organisms.

Pharmaceutical chemistry: the course of drug design to optimize pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and synthesis of advanced drug molecule.

Pharmaceutics: the course and drug design of drug formulation for best delivery, stability, pharmacokinetics, and patient acceptance       .

Pharmacognosy : the course of medicines derived from natural sources.

As new discoveries advance and enhance the pharmaceutical chemistry, subspecialties continue to be added to this list. Importantly, as knowledge leading, boundaries among these specialty areas of pharmaceutical sciences are opening to blur. Many fundamental concepts are accepted to all pharmaceutical sciences. These shared fundamental concepts added the understanding of their applicability to all conditions of pharmaceutical research and drug therapy.
