Research Oriented Curriculum
During your studies, you can work with our highly accomplished faculty at every stage of experimental, hands-on research; studying biological processes, modeling novel compounds, synthesizing these compounds and testing their effects.
We cultivate a positive, supportive academic environment that enables you to thrive.
Conducting lab research as an undergraduate lays the groundwork for a successful career in Pharmacology and Toxicology, Neuroscience and related fields in the Biomedical Sciences.
Our majors get hands-on research experience in PMY 409 (Experimental Pharmacology). We also offer lab research to majors and interested non-majors via PMY 498.
Our faculty has extraordinarily broad and diverse areas of research interest. These areas include neuropharmacology, behavioral pharmacology, hormone mechanisms, drug use and abuse, toxicology, biophysics and genetics of ion channels, pharmacogenomics & toxicogenomics, circadian rhythms, neuroscience, and cancer.
Our faculty take advantage of resources within and beyond our department to conduct wide ranging interdisciplinary collaborations using state-of-the art techniques.
There are 21 faculty members and approximately 20 adjunct faculty.
