The disciplines of pharmacology and physiology touch on virtually every field of the biomedical sciences, presenting endless opportunities to discover disease mechanisms and develop new treatments. This translational approach is at the basis of our work, firmly rooted in the concept of promoting a seamless and continuous transition between the basic and the clinical sciences.

Our faculty pursue a variety of scientific interests in the areas of neurological disorders, cancer therapeutics, pain, cardiovascular and renal physiology, substance abuse, HIV neuropathology and comorbidities. We invite you to visit their laboratory pages and learn more about ongoing research projects and available openings. Feel free to inquire if you have any questions!

Dr. Mathiasen Serves as NASA Panel Reviewer

Joanne Mathiasen, PhD, served as a reviewer on a NASA Space Radiation-CNS Degeneration panel on October 3. The NASA Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) research call solicits proposals for ground-based research that will provide the basis for accurate risk quantification reflective of the astronaut population; establish the validity of permissible exposure limits; and investigate in-flight cognitive and behavioral central nervous system risks, and biomedical countermeasures for in-flight and late central nervous system decrements resulting from exposure to space radiation. Dr. Mathiasen is very honored to have been selected to serve on this panel.
