The Pharmacology Education Partnership is a joint venture among Duke University Medical Center, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, and biology and chemistry teachers across the United States. The project was funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to produce and share standards-based inquiry teaching materials and activities with high school teachers. The purpose of the partnership is to provide biology and chemistry teachers with practical applications of basic concepts from both biology and chemistry disciplines using pharmacology topics of interest to high school students. This web application provides the science content and background for teachers and students to apply pharmacology topics to basic biology and chemistry principles.
