Molecular Pharmacology

Molecular pharmacology seeks to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms of basic biological processes and their mode of dysfunction under pathophysiological conditions. The science of pharmacology addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, exploring biological processes in vitro and in vivo.

Molecular Pharmacology offers training in molecular basis of drug action. The teaching and training programs share an interest in linking mechanisms of drug action to dysfunctional biological and cellular processes of human diseases.
