Pharmacology - Mission and Vision

The missions of the Department of Pharmacology are to guide aspiring physicians in the rational use of drugs, to prepare graduate students for lifetimes of scholarship in the discipline, and to develop, through basic research, novel ways to better utilize pharmaceuticals. In each of these endeavors, the Department emphasizes fundamental mechanisms of drug action. All full-time faculty are actively involved in the courses of study and in the opportunities for research extended to both medical and graduate students. Each faculty member maintains an active research laboratory.
