Pharmacology is a very progressive science that combines the most ground-breaking and modern aspects of all major biomedical disciplines with the primary goals of making safe and effective medicines and understanding how they work. Areas of focus include subcellular localization of drug targets, receptor binding events, gene- and immuno-therapy, modulation of enzymatic activities and many others.
Our students engage in an exciting journey to identify novel therapeutics and targets, create new molecules, and test their effects in clinically relevant models of cardiovascular, neuroscience and other human diseases.
Our faculty are internationally recognized researchers and passionate teachers committed to training the next generation of scientists, teachers and other professionals.
Our graduates obtain cutting-edge jobs in medical, academic research, teaching, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory (e.g. FDA), scientific retail, law and other professions.
If you are thinking about an exciting career in Pharmacology we would love to talk with you!
"Passionate about drug discovery? Conduct your graduate training with us. We place
over 95% of our graduates in competitive academic, teaching, regulatory, industrial
and other fields. Our faculty and students use state-of-the art approaches to investigate
the interaction of drugs and toxins with biological systems. We look forward to hearing

Everyone will tell you that picking your mentor is the most important decision you
will make. I want to expand and add that it is equally important to pick a supportive
department. An extended support network can be a huge boost to your resilience and
