T32 Training Grant

The Center for Training in Pharmacology and Drug Development (CTPDD) is the administrative home of the Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (MCP) Graduate Training Program and its T32 training grant. It is directed by Dr. Anjon Audhya, Associate Professor of Biomolecular Chemistry, and Dr. Jeffrey Johnson, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The CTPDD was approved by the Provost and Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at UW-Madison in 2014 and administers all Pharmacology coursework in the School of Medicine and Public Health. Moreover, it provides an additional source of direct faculty support to trainees in the MCP program, and establishes a direct connection between the School of Medicine and Public Health and the School of Pharmacy at UW-Madison. The main goal of the CTPDD is to bring together faculty and trainees across the campus that possess a common interest in Pharmacology, ranging from small molecule design and synthesis to cell and animal-based studies to examine drug action and delivery. In many ways, the CTPDD acts as a departmental home for the MCP program, with a singular mission to support the MCP program and graduate training in Pharmacology at UW-Madison.
