Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology and Systems Physiology (PSP). Our goal is to advance the fields of basic and applied physiology and pharmacology by engaging in innovative biomedical research. We provide our students with a challenging and supportive environment to pursue academic and professional careers in the biomedical sciences.
Physiologists and pharmacologists alike are curious about the ability of molecules to contribute to cell function, the ability of cells to contribute to tissue function, the ability of tissues to affect organismal function, and ultimately the effects that therapeutic agents have on these systems. Physiology is the science that integrates simple mechanisms into complex systems, and pharmacology uses this knowledge to support the development of the next generation of therapeutic agents.
