The Pharmacology and Toxicology Program does not admit students with the expressed interest in pursuing the M.S. degree. However, for a variety of reasons students admitted to the Ph.D. Program may choose to complete an M.S. degree (non-thesis option) either alongside or in lieu of a Ph.D. degree.
The College of Pharmacy offers a graduate program leading to a Doctor of Philosophy or Master of Science degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology. Over twenty faculty participate in the program. Faculty research interests are in various areas of pharmacology (including cell signaling, G-protein receptors, chemotherapeutics, pharmacogenomics), toxicology (including hepatic, renal, pulmonary, neurotoxicity; metal toxicity, environmental toxicity, carcinogenesis), molecular pharmacology/toxicology, and drug development.
Pharmacology and Toxicology PhD students should meet with the Graduate Programs coordinator to add this plan.
