Doctor of Philosophy in Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology

Doctor of Philosophy in Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology

The Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology doctoral degree is part of the campus-wide, interdisciplinary Molecular Biosciences graduate program. Participating faculty are from many departments within the University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM), College of Science (COS), and College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources (CABNR).

Research emphasis encompasses areas such as molecular pharmacology, molecular biology of ion channels, cell physiology, cardiovascular pharmacology, autonomic pharmacology and neuropharmacology.

A flexible, multidisciplinary basic sciences curriculum, combined with advanced pharmacology and physiology courses, provides the foundation of knowledge needed for subsequent research activities.

Individual laboratory attention by the faculty allows students to develop skills in experimental design, execution and analysis, statistics, literature searching, grant writing, manuscript preparation, oral presentations and laboratory management. The focus of the doctoral research may be tailored to students’ interests, goals and abilities.

The program typically requires four full years to complete and is designed to prepare students for a competitive career in pharmacology or physiology.
