From the day the doors first opened at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
(TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy (SOP), the basic sciences have played an important role
in the school’s development. In the fall of 2009, this role was further emphasized
by the formation of the Department of Biomedical Sciences, which is an instrumental
component of the SOP’s Pharm.D. program and the TTUHSC Graduate School of Biomedical
Department faculty members are responsible for teaching Pharm.D. students the basic
biomedical sciences subjects, including biochemistry, physiology, immunology, genetics,
microbiology and biostatistics. They also provide instruction in advanced patho-physiology
and molecular physiology.
The department is presently comprised of 12 faculty members whose research interests
include: cancer cellular and molecular biology; cancer chemoprevention; cancer therapeutics
and drug resistance; vascular and renal pathophysiology; signal transduction and development;
epilepsy and neurobiology; molecular and digital pathology; proteomics and transcriptomics;
and natural products and pharmacognosy.
