Pharmacology Emphasis

Pharmacology is the study of how chemical agents affect living processes; the chemicals involved include agents such as endogenous hormones, neurotransmitters, and/or growth factors; toxic substances in our environment; and pharmaceutically developed drugs. Faculty mentors in this program are interested in the impact of toxicological agents on normal processes and their role in disease initiation as well as the molecular bases for the action of endogenous substances, with the intent of identifying novel therapeutic targets by revealing new insights into critical regulatory steps in signaling pathways that go awry in disease.
