Pharmacology and Neuroscience
Welcome to the website for the Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience at Texas
Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC). Our department is dedicated to excellence
in research, medical and graduate education and service by creating, advancing and
disseminating knowledge about drug actions and nervous system functions and dysfunctions.
We are in the middle of a major period of growth and transformation from traditionally
strong expertise in the area of alcohol and addiction to pain and related neuropsychiatric
disorders. As a basic science facility in the School of Medicine the Department of
Pharmacology and Neuroscience strives to provide insight into fundamental pharmacological
and neurobiological principles that will advance our understanding of clinically relevant
disorders, which is required for the development of novel and improved diagnostic
approaches and therapeutic strategies.
Great collegiality and collaborative work environment are hallmarks of our departmental
culture. We are strengthening existing interactions with basic scientists at TTUHSC
and TTU while building translational bridges with our clinical departments.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please feel free to contact me with any questions
or for more information.
