Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics
The Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics is located in the Western Gateway Building and in the School of Pharmacy on the main campus. From an administrative perspective, the Department is part of the School of Medicine, within the College of Medicine and Health. However, our staff are based both in the School of Medicine and the School of Pharmacy.
We have three overarching aims:
- To provide excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Pharmacology, Toxicology, Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics. We teach students in the fields of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy and the Basic Sciences across the Colleges of Medicine and Health and Science, Engineering and Food Science. More details available in our Teaching link.
- To excel in research. The research interests of the staff cross multiple systems. More details availalbe in our Research link.
- To attract and inspire motivated, successful and content students and staff.
Facilities include both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research laboratories. These facilities incorporate cell and molecular biology facilities, microscopy, flow cytometry as well as facilities for traditional in vitro pharmacological techniques.
We look forward to engaging with all stakeholders in Pharmacology teaching and research to enhance the safety, quality and efficacy of pharmaceutical-based healthcare.
