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 Graduate program in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology trains 40-50 graduate students and links more than 60 faculty from BNL, CHSL, and SBU. Plans are underway for formation this coming year of the SBU Umbrella Program in Biomedical Sciences and Molecular Medicine, featuring Training Programs in Molecular & Cellular Pharmacology, Neuroscience, and Physiology & Biophysics. This program will offer incoming students new options for integrated training and interactions across a wide spectrum of disciplines.

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.
