Pharmacology
PHARMACOLOGY [Greek: pharmacon, drug + logos, discourse] The Greek poet Homer and the philosopher Plato (428–348 BC) used the term to denote poisons and remedies. Claudius Galen (AD 129–200) described over 347 herbal remedies which earned him a place as the father of pharmacology. Dioscorides (AD 40–90) used the term materia medica to denote a compilation and description of medical substances. Modern pharmacology studies the nature and physiological action of drugs, and became a specialty only in the mid-19th century. The first laboratory was established at Dorpat by Karl Binz (1832–1912), a pupil of Rudolph Virchow (1821–1902) and Oswald Schmiedeberg (1838–1921). Binz founded the Pharmacological Institute of the University of Bonn in 1869 and published a book on history of anesthesia (1896) and another on materia medica in 1866. The first laboratory in America was founded in Michigan in 1893 and University College in London established one in England in 1905, under Arthur Robertson Cushny (1866–1926), who had been professor of pharmacology at the University of Michigan before returning to London in 1904. He wrote The of Pharmacology and Therapeutics in 1899
