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.
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.
This has been a successful year in terms of integrating new faculty and obtaining extramural funding. Our faculty are currently funded by several NIH and foundation grants for studies on clinically relevant disorders. Our Department houses the Center of Excellence for Translational Neuroscience and Therapeutics (CTNT). Our faculty continue to make valuable contributions to medical and graduate school education for example as Block Director of the Major Organ Systems SOM course and Directors of Graduate Programs/Concentrations.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more information.
