Overview

Pharmacology and Toxicology Graduate Programs

The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology has research strengths in neuropharmacology — especially in neurodegeneration, mood disorders, and addiction — and control of energy metabolism and effects of diabetes on the nervous system. The research program is founded on a strong Ph.D. graduate program. Doctoral students are prepared to teach and do research in a university, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or government laboratory setting.

New Ph.D. students can look forward to personal development in an atmosphere that fosters strong collaborative activities as well as independent scholarship. The department recruits 4 to 5 Ph.D.  students each year and offers stipends and tuition coverage. The department’s research programs and faculty place it at the leading edge of research in the pharmacological and toxicological neurosciences. The School of Pharmacy is ranked third in the nation for the NIH funding.
