In 1891, forty-one years after the University of Michigan Medical School began, the University established the first Department of Pharmacology in the United States. Its founder and first chair was John Jacob Abel, regarded as the Father of American Pharmacology.

Over the more than one hundred years since its start, our department has awarded more Ph.D. degrees in pharmacology than any other American university. Our graduates have made a major impact on the field of pharmacology. Among our alums are many pharmaceutical company executives, research directors and senior scientists; directors of government research labs; and recognized chairs and faculty in academia with reputations for both excellent research and teaching.
