Master of Science and Doctor of
Philosophy in Pharmacology
The St. John's University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences offers M.S. and Ph.D. programs specializing in
pharmacology. Pharmacology is a broad discipline that encompasses a
wide range of research areas.
The college has active basic science laboratories in areas ranging
from cardiovascular pharmacology to neuropharmacology; with many
areas of clinical interest represented. Masters students enrolled
in the thesis option plan and Ph.D. students receive rigorous
training in coursework as well as laboratory research.
Pharmacology faculty are all active scientists involved in the
training of graduate students both in the classroom and in the
laboratory. Many pharmacology faculty are funded by grants from the
National Institute of Health, as well as other government and
private agencies. Graduates of the program in pharmacology are
prepared to assume research or regulatory responsibilities in the
pharmaceutical industry, government or academia.
