Richard Wojcikiewicz, PhD
  Chair, Department of Pharmacology

Thank you for visiting the Department of Pharmacology website. Please explore the exciting research currently being undertaken by our faculty. Read more...

Pharmacology is the science of cellular and molecular biology, and physiology and disease, in relation to drug action. It is central to the translation of basic research into medicines.

The past two decades have witnessed tremendous changes in the discipline of pharmacology, with the birth and development of many new areas, from molecular pharmacology to systems pharmacology to pharmacogenomics.  Information gained is now being translated to improved therapeutics. Thus, this is truly an exciting time for pharmacological research and education!  In the next few years we will be hiring several new faculty at the Assistant Professor level (see advertisement to the right).  Join us on our mission!
