The Pharmacology department is part of a conjoint graduate program in biomedical sciences involving a number of academic departments within the School of Medicine and the Public Health program. The department offers requisite course work for students in the School of Medicine, and offers the MS and PhD degrees. Much of the faculty teaching load relates to required courses within the medical school and the School of Nursing. On occasion, medical school students jointly pursue a graduate degree within the program.
Areas of active faculty and graduate student research include autonomic nervous system pharmacology; cardiovascular pharmacology; biochemical pharmacology; neuropharmacology; pharmacology of natural products; antineoplastic and antiviral drugs.
The field of pharmacology overlaps with almost every other biomedical science, most especially physiology, biochemistry, chemistry, and medicine.
Publications of the National Institutes of Health and other medically related government publications are available in the Government Documents Collection.
The collections at several of the hospital libraries act as a supplementary resource for the more clinically oriented journals not held by Hamilton Library.
