Department of

Pharmacology & Systems Physiology 

Chair’s Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology & Systems Physiology. This newly formed department incorporates two long-standing college of medicine departments with strong histories of excellence at the University of Cincinnati. Our new department is pursuing research initiatives exploring how organ systems interact to promote health and impact disease processes. Key areas of emphasis include the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and nervous systems, and we use systems biology and informatics to develop innovative new approaches for our research endeavors.

The department is committed to the training of the next generation of scientists, with PhD programs in the areas of Molecular & Cellular Pharmacology and Systems Biology & Physiology, and rigorous master’s programs geared toward preparing students for entry into the biomedical sciences workforce and enhancing competiveness for medical school admissions. We look forward to a strong period of growth in both our research and education missions, and welcome you to consider joining us in this exciting time.
