The department of pharmacology and experimental neuroscience has grown in number and stature and is truly interdisciplinary. We occupy nearly 40,000 square feet of modern or newly renovated laboratory space and are among the most well equipped research and educational facilities in its field worldwide.
Our mission remains to:
- Provide outstanding education to future generations of researchers and health care providers
- Realize impactful research discoveries that influence the health and well-being of our patients and the integrity of our field
- Sustain ourselves as role models for our students and colleagues
Pharmacology continues to be among the most dynamic of the biomedical sciences. Neuroscience research has been a major emphasis of the department 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 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 and a summer undergraduate research program.
Great things are happening in the department of pharmacology and experimental neuroscience at UNMC. We encourage you to explore the additional information on this web site.
