Our research is at the interface of physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology and pathology. We rely on a combination of molecular, biochemical, cellular and behavioral tools. The general goals of our Department’s research are to understand normal physiology, pathophysiology, and drug action.
- To establish productive areas of basic and applied research in the field of how drugs and genetic engineering can be better used to treat disease.
- To provide didactic training in physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology for students pursuing the Pharm.D. degree throughout the state of Florida.
- To provide broad training for graduate students in the physiology, pharmacology, and neuroscience disciplines as well as in depth didactic and research training in specialized areas of Pharmacodynamics.
- To provide a research environment which allow undergraduate students and pharmacy students to pursue research interests congruent to those in the department.
