 The Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology is comprised of 27 primary faculty, 113 graduate students and 39 postdoctoral fellows with complementary research interests and expertise. Ongoing research in the department addresses a myriad of important scientific questions relevant to cancer, metabolism, nervous system function, drugs of abuse, and environmental toxicants. One unifying theme is the use of pharmacological approaches to define the key regulatory steps in relevant pathways that may be amenable to pharmaceutical exploitation or whose dysregulation may be involved in the pathogenesis of disease.
