Welcome

to the Department of Pharmacological Sciences at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. Our mission is to provide excellence in biomedical research, graduate and undergraduate education. Our faculty bring in more than $10 million annually in direct extramural support, and exciting findings are reported regularly in a host of premier journals.

Our Ph.D. program in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology brings together gifted students, scientists and physicians from BNL, CSHL, and SBU striving to explore the biochemical and molecular biological mechanisms that regulate cell and organ function, and the design and development of effective pharmacological means to intervene in them when they are errant.
Our new M.S. program in Biomedical Science, track Pharmacology provides a sound scientific foundation for students pursuing careers in the academic, pharmaceutical, and government sectors.

The undergraduate major program in Pharmacology is one of only three such in the country and continues to train some of the very best students at SBU, a high fraction of whom go on to medical/graduate school and careers in pharmacological biotechnology.
