Program Description:

Pharmacology has become an important subject discipline in health professions such as medicine, nursing, and pharmacy. Pharmacologists learn how drugs modify living organisms by studying and measuring drug actions at molecular, biochemical, cellular, and physiological levels of analysis. Toxicology is a field of scientific study concerned with the adverse effects of chemical substances on living systems. Toxicologists draw on our expanding knowledge of biological and chemical phenomena to explain and predict the nature and extent of harmful effects of chemicals on living systems. Core graduates courses are in medical physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, statistics and experimental design. Course work and laboratory rotation enable you to become familiar with the research activities and expertise of the pharmacology and toxicology faculty. You, along with the faculty will participate in intramural seminars and a weekly Journal Club, and communicate research findings at local and national scientific meetings and conferences. Emphasis is placed on integrating theory and experiment through both coursework and independent laboratory-based research.
