Pharmacology continues to be among the most dynamic of the biomedical sciences. Neuroscience research has been a major emphasis of the Department of Pharmacology at UNMC from its earliest days. This expanded with the 2004 merger of UNMC's internationally recognized Center for Neurovirology and Neurodegenerative Disorders (CNND) into the Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience. Over 120 faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and support staff collaborate in state-of-the-art research facilities on the UNMC campus.
The Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience is rapidly growing, not only in terms of facilities, personnel and core research support, but also in a national and international reputation. The department offers graduate education in pharmacology and neurosciences, and a summer undergraduate research program.
