Welcome to Pharmacology at CWRU

Our mission is to discover specific mechanisms that control physiological processes at the cellular and molecular level. Our basic science approach is the best framework for rational drug design, and our research offers hope for defeating some of humanity's most devastating diseases--breast cancer, AIDS, blindness, hypertension, Alzheimer's, and diabetes.

The mission of our Department encompasses research and education in molecular, cellular, and clinical pharmacology. We actively participate in five specialized research centers associated primarily with the Department of Pharmacology and we are committed to supporting the community of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in support of today's research for tomorrow's cures.
