Department of Pharmacology

Pharmacology is a broad and integrative discipline that focuses on the interaction of living cells with the regulatory molecules in their environment. It is a diverse science that proves basic mechanisms of molecular and cellular function with the knowledge that unraveling these mechanisms will lead to new therapeutic approaches to a variety of diseases. The Department of Pharmacology has a unique role within the basic biomedical sciences: to conduct investigations into the fundamental principles of cell function and translate these findings to clinical applications.
