Pharmacology, Biotechnology and Forensics

Welcome to Chemistry Applications: Pharmacology, Biotechnology and Forensics, a high school curriculum. Included in this curriculum are many lesson plans that are aligned with the North Carolina Chemistry and Biology Standards, in addition to the National Science Standard. Students will learn to be critically thinking, problem solving individuals who will relate science to the real world.

Pharmacology involves drugs and their interactions in the human body.

Biotechnology is the use of biological systems in technology.

Forensics is the interaction of science and the law. Currently, most of the crime labs around the world spend most of their resources on drug identification and the biotechnology of DNA to identify victims and criminals involved in homicides, suicides and natural deaths.
