Announcements & News


Due to circumstances that are out of our control, the department has changed its name from Molecular Pharmacology (MolPharm) back to its original title, Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (MCP)

The Pharmacology Graduate Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been ranked in the top twelve Pharmacology Programs nationwide, reflecting the outstanding teaching and research quality of its members. The Program is based in the Department of Pharmacology, which constitutes one of the Basic Science Departments of the University of Wisconsin Medical School.

The objective of the Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology is to equip students with the skills required to conduct state-of-the-art biomolecular, biomedical, and pharmacological basic research. The Program assists students in becoming independent investigators in these research areas.

Advances in biomedical sciences are often based on the development of new drugs which improve and save the lives of millions of patients. Drugs with specific biochemical actions are also powerful research tools. They provide pharmacologists and other biomedical scientists unique research opportunities which help to elucidate cellular signaling cascades. Students of the Graduate Program will develop expertise in the fundamentals of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology. They will be able to solve a variety of problems in basic biomedical sciences involving the design of research strategies for the discovery of novel drugs or gene therapy approaches to regulate aberrant signal transduction cascades.
