A major emphasis of the Department is in the areas
of neuropharmacology, neuroscience, and toxicology, with research in:
- drug and alcohol addiction research
- neurotransmitter regulation & plasticity in addiction, aging, and neurodegenerative disease in vivo
- oxidative mechanisms of toxicity
- molecular regulation of toxicity and apoptosis
- gene therapy
- carcinogenesis and cancer chemoprevention
- neurobiology of locomotor function in aging
- molecular cascades in neurodegenerative disease models
- molecular basis of behavioral consequences from prenatal drug exposure
The Department offers graduate programs of study
in neuroscience and toxicology and emphasizes and
