Faculty. The more than 90 faculty in the graduate group represent at least 25 academic departments and organized research units within the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the College of Biological Sciences, the School of Medicine and the School of Veterinary Medicine.
Graduate Study. The program, which offers both the M.S. and Ph.D. degree, emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach that combines coursework and experimental training in modern approaches to pharmacological and toxicological problems. Areas of research span fundamental and translational research in a broad spectrum of areas within pharmacology and toxicology, including cardiovascular pharmacology, cancer therapeutics, neuropharmacology, drug discovery and design, neurotoxicology, pulmonary toxicology and environmental toxicology. Students complete core courses in pharmacology and toxicology and carry out research rotations during their first year of study. All Ph.D. students receive financial support. For detailed information on the program, contact the Group office, graduate advisors, or the Group chairperson.
