Department of Pharmacology Courses » Overview

Welcome to an overview of the department's Doctoral and Masters Training Program. The department and school are committed to providing a strong education experience for all trainees. The department's primary areas of training emphasis are neuroscience/ neuropharmacology and cardiovascular/ autonomic pharmacology. We currently have 10 departmental, 3 emmeritus  and 15 additional graduate faculty who conduct research in a broad variety of subjects ranging from environmental toxicology to molecular pharmacology. This allows a broad basis for a strong theoretical as well as 'hands-on' education in pharmacology. You can review the faculty research now. Our objective is to prepare students for careers in research and teaching. The faculty of the program work hard to foster a creative and productive research atmosphere, to provide encouragement and positive challenges, and to equip students with the intellectual tools they will need to be good teachers and investigators.

We feel that our M.S., Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. trainees leave our institution with all the skills necessary to establish a strong independent research program of their own.

The physicist Kip S. Thorne has marveled at "the amazing power of the human mind - by fits and starts, blind alleys, and leaps of insight - to unravel the complexities of our Universe, and reveal the ultimate simplicity, the elegance, and the glorious beauty of the fundamental laws that govern it."

Underrepresented minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
