Molecular Pharmacology, Toxicology and Experimental Therapeutics

The Molecular Pharmacology, Toxicology and Experimental Therapeutics Program provides comprehensive training leading to a Ph.D. or combined M.D.-Ph.D. degrees. This program has three tracks of study with an emphasis on Molecular Pharmacology, Molecular Toxicology and Experimental Therapeutics. Faculty expertise include, molecular basis for chemotherapy and chemoprevention, neuropharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, integrative systems pharmacology, molecular toxicology, environmental toxicology, pharmacogenetics and experimental therapeutics.

The faculty has developed a rigorous course of study and created a supportive environment aimed at providing students with all the tools necessary to compete effectively for the attractive positions in the biomedical sciences. Specialized MPTT course work in Experimental Techniques and Therapeutics, and Medical Pharmacology and Toxicology are required, in addition to one elective. Our goal is to educate accomplished scientists with high scientific integrity, who think critically, communicate effectively, and have skills in Molecular Pharmacology, Toxicology and Experimental Therapeutics that will permit graduates to contribute in diverse professional settings within academia, industry, and elsewhere.
