 ICH Guideline on Safety Pharmacology
For the purpose of this document, safety pharmacology studies are defined as those studies that investigate the potential undesirable pharmacodynamic effects of a substance on physiological functions in relationship to exposure.
The objectives of safety pharmacology studies are: 1) to identify undesirable pharmacodynamic properties of a substance that may have relevance to its human safety; 2) to evaluate adverse pharmacodynamic and/or pathophysiological effects of a substance observed in toxicology and/or clinical studies; and 3) to investigate the mechanism of the adverse pharmacodynamic effects observed and/or suspected.
Safety pharmacology studies prior to the first administration in humans may not be necessary for cytotoxic agents for treatment of end-stage cancer patients.

 Pharmacology - Department of Pharmacology
The main goals of the Department of Pharmacology are to improve therapy with the use of genetic-genomic information, leading to individualized medicine, and early therapy or prevention.
Rather than applying the concept of one-drug-fits-all, pharmacogenomics aims to optimize therapy for the individual patient- on the basis of genetic profiles that determine susceptibility to disease and response to therapy.
For example, researchers have developed a novel approach to measure and evaluate genetic variability associated with coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death worldwide.
