Admissions to the Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Doctoral Minor have been suspended as of fall 2022 and will be discontinued as of fall 2026. If you have any questions, please contact the department.

The objective of the doctoral minor in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology is to equip students with an introduction to some of the skills required to conduct state-of-the-art biomolecular, biomedical, and pharmacological basic research. Advances in biomedical sciences are often based on the development of new drugs, which improve and save the lives of millions of patients. Drugs with specific biochemical actions are also powerful research tools. They provide pharmacologists and other biomedical scientists unique research opportunities which help to elucidate cellular signaling cascades.
