Pharmacology & Toxicology
Research in the Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology encompasses studies elucidating basic and translational mechanisms of drug action, the neuropharmacology of addiction, environmental factors that perturb health and lead to disease, DNA repair and genetic instability, and cancer biology, treatment, and prevention.
Our curriculum and research program prepare students for careers related to the actions of drugs and their therapeutic potential, and toxicological mechanisms of disease. Faculty and students use cutting-edge biochemical, molecular, cellular, physiological, and behavioral experimental approaches in their laboratories. Through interactions across various departments, centers and institutes, Division faculty and students have access to state-of-the-art facilities in genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and imaging technologies and expertise.
