Department of Pharmacology & Physiology


The Department of Pharmacology & Physiology is made up of highly accomplished faculty and scholars that are widely recognized with awards, appointments to national committees, and invitations to speak at international symposia. We have an excellent success record in obtaining national funding from such sources as the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and other nationally recognized funding agencies.

Our graduate program maintains a rich history of national recognition in graduate education and research. Many graduates have prominent positions in academia, government and industry. The Department has been awarded Training Grants from the National Institutes of Health. These prestigious and highly competitive grants are awarded to only a few programs nationwide each year and are perhaps the best indication of the high quality of our program.
