Welcome to the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology. Our group is composed of scientists, educators and trainees with diverse backgrounds in pharmacology, physiology, neuroscience, and molecular/cellular biology. We strive to fulfill the education mission of USF Health Morsani College of Medicine and the School of Biomedical Sciences by designing and conducting high quality interdisciplinary courses at the graduate (Ph.D, M.S.) and professional (M.D., D.P.T, and Pharm.D.) degree levels. We provide extraordinary learning experience for our students with the goal of preparing them for the ever-challenging environment in medicine as well as the transformation in biomedical research.
The goal of our research programs is to translate studies that decipher mechanisms of diseases or discover novel diagnostic/therapeutic targets into improved health care. Our current interests and expertise include:
