Pharmacology and Toxicology Graduate Program

pillsDrug Abuse

The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology offers excellent pre- and postdoctoral training in the field of drug abuse research via the Drug Abuse Training Grant and the Drug Abuse Center Grant. Both of these grants are funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and reflect the overall excellence of the department’s research expertise in this area. The Drug Abuse Training Grant provides financial support (tuition and stipend) for students whose research is directed toward a greater understanding of how drugs of abuse affect human health.

The Drug Abuse Center Grant brings together individual investigators who share a common interest in understanding the molecular interactions of various drugs of abuse on neuronal systems. Both grants also sponsor a weekly Drug Abuse Seminar Program. This important resource allows students and faculty to learn about the latest developments in the field of drug abuse research from experts in this field.
