Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology
Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical College of Wisconsin is dedicated to quality in research, graduate and postdoctoral training and medical education. The research interests of our faculty are broadly based in cardiovascular pharmacology, neuropharmacology, cancer pharmacology, toxicology and molecular pharmacology. The research programs in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology are also multidisciplinary in nature and have strong associations with researchers of other basic science and clinical departments.
There is a long history of quality graduate education in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our graduates are successful scientists in universities, pharmaceutical companies and government. The size of our program encourages the development of a close working relationship between students and faculty. In addition, every effort is made to optimize and tailor our training programs to meet individual student needs in preparation for successful careers in pharmacology and toxicology. Our doctoral program provides diverse research opportunities in the areas of cardiovascular pharmacology, molecular pharmacology, molecular toxicology, neuropharmacology and cancer pharmacology. An emphasis is placed on cellular and molecular pharmacology and signal transduction. The primary objective of our program is to provide students with an academic background and state-of-the-art scientific approaches needed to investigate and solve the important biological and biomedical problems that will be the focus of research in the 2000's.
