Research is the life blood of Pharmacology. Departmental faculty are pursuing several areas of research including:
- neuroscience and auditory research
- cardiovascular science
- cancer biology
- molecular pharmacology
We study mechanisms of disease and development of ways to prevent or treat them. These studies are funded by National Institutes of Health and many other federal or national research organizations.
