Why Michigan Pharmacology?

More than any other basic science discipline, pharmacology is tightly connected to the understanding and treatment of human disease. At U-M, students can be involved in the discovery of new drugs, modeling of drugs and their targets, detailed studies of drug mechanisms in disease from biochemical, molecular, and genetic perspectives and translational studies aimed at moving drugs into the clinic.  

The comprehensive nature of pharmacology at U-M allows students to focus on research areas that include cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, drug discovery, neuropharmacology and addiction, and supporting basic studies in drug metabolism, pharmacogenomics, and signal transduction.
