Quarter: Winter 2014
Grade: A
April 21, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed Izquierdo's pharmacology course 119A. I have since graduated from UCLA and found that this class is quite relevant to my job researching intellectual disabilities at the UC Davis MIND Institute. This course provided a foundation of knowledge that allowed me to understand the mechanism of action of the investigational product (IP), or study drug, used in UC Davis clinical trials for fragile X syndrome and pediatric bipolar disorder. Additionally I was able to have informed discussions about Parkinson's medication with a neurologist that I shadowed.

Another helpful part of the class was the exercise of reviewing scientific literature. Izquierdo selected interesting papers which discussed the use of various psychotropics such as methylphenidate or tetrahydrocannabinol. She picked apart each paper in lecture and explained her thinking about the results and research methods. This course helped me understand neurobiological changes in the brain's reward pathways following chronic substance abuse.

The midterm and final were challenging but fair because Izquierdo gave the class a study guide beforehand with all the potential short answer and essay questions. There were plenty of choices for the term paper prompt, so I was able to choose a topic that interested me. Overall the workload was very reasonable. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in pharmacology or biomedical research.
