The Molecular Pharmacology Graduate Program offers an outstanding research environment and is currently ranked 9th nationally in NIH funding of pharmacology departments. Biomedical research in the program is focused on molecular and cellular mechanisms of intracellular signaling using a combination of biochemical, molecular biological, biophysical, ultrastructural, and imaging approaches. Basic information on cellular communication in health and disease provides the basis for the development and testing of novel therapeutic agents.
