Department of

Pharmacology & Systems Physiology 


The department seminar showcases cutting-edge research in physiology, pharmacology and related disciplines, spanning basic research to translational science. We invite internationally renowned visitors or local investigators from UC and Cincinnati Children's Hospital to discuss their work. Seminars are held weekly throughout the fall semester, spring semester, and the first portion ("Maymester") of the summer term.

Tuesdays at 4:00 pm
