Program in Pharmacology

Whether your interests lie in curing diseases of the mind or heart, or eradicating cancer for generations to come, training in pharmacology will give you the best foundation for advancing your research ideas from discovery to treatment. The Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine Program in Pharmacology provides advanced training in the sources, chemical properties, biological effects, and therapeutic uses of drugs and medications.

Over the years, we have developed a highly interdisciplinary university-wide training program, that includes faculty in pharmacology, biophysics, physiology, structural biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and biomedical engineering. Our faculty provide students with a strong foundation in molecular, cellular, and behavioral pharmacology through an advanced academic curriculum and cutting-edge laboratory research techniques. Faculty, students, and staff within the Program in Pharmacology are united by a central pharmacological goal: to advance science by gaining a thorough understanding of the etiology, progression, and treatment of human diseases.
