The Pharmacology and Toxicology research track trains students to determine mechanisms of action for pharmaceuticals, identify potential drug targets, and define adverse effects of chemicals such as drugs, industrial chemicals and environmental pollutants.

About

Pharmacology and toxicology are allied scientific disciplines concerned with investigations of physiological and biochemical actions of endogenous compounds and xenobiotics on living tissues. These studies range in scope from investigations at the molecular level to clinical pharmacological and toxicological responses in humans. The ability of pharmacologists to explain basic mechanisms of drug action in living cells and biological systems has permitted the development of a rational approach to drug design and use. In addition, pharmacologists and toxicologists study compounds to gain a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of toxicity.
