Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience


The Pharmacology and Neuroscience’s objective is to prepare students for careers in research and teaching.  The faculty of the program seeks to foster a creative and productive research atmosphere, to provide encouragement and positive challenge, and to equip students with the intellectual tools they will need to be effective teachers and investigators.  Specialized research training is available in the areas of aging, biochemical and behavioral pharmacology, circadian pharmacology, neuropharmacology and molecular pharmacology.  In addition, the department houses the South Plains Alcohol and Addiction Research Center (SPAARC), a team of graduate faculty and other investigators with research interests focused on all aspects of drug use.
