The graduate program in Pharmacology offers multidisciplinary training in molecular pharmacology and neurobiology. The program is designed for a select group of students with strong backgrounds in biology, chemistry or the physical sciences. An individually tailored program of study is designed for each student, specific to his or her undergraduate background and research interests. Throughout the program, students participate actively in research seminars, a journal club in which graduate students present their own research as well as that from the current literature and laboratory group meetings. The Program is composed of 25 full-time members, a number of whom hold joint appointments in clinical departments, and whose research interests vary. Thesis research can be done in receptor pharmacology, mechanisms of signal transduction, cellular and developmental neurobiology, oncogenes, neurochemistry and neuropharmacology.
