Program Overview


The members of the multidisciplinary Pharmacology graduate faculty bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to the laboratory and the classroom. The graduate faculty is comprised of scientists from the Pharmacology Department as well as other departments at the Health Science Center (Endodontics, Medicine, Psychiatry, Surgery, etc.)

Currently, there are about 15 graduate students enrolled in the Pharmacology Department's doctoral program. Students and faculty interact freely in a relaxed atmosphere. The faculty to student ratio is small enough to offer a welcoming and supportive environment for new students.
