About the Department
There are three aspects to the graduate training program in the Department of Pharmacology. The first aspect is mastery by the student of the fundamentals of pharmacology, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, signal transduction, toxicology and physiology. These fundamentals are taught at the graduate level through formal courses, seminars and journal clubs and countless conversations at the lab bench. The second aspect is the development of the communication skills that are essential for a successful career in research. Students in our program present seminars, and write scientific papers. Finally, and most importantly, the third aspect of the program is the development of research skills. The department offers its expertise to B.Pharm, M.Pharm & Pharm.D students. The development of certificate course in clinical trials is in the pipeline to set up another milestone.
