Molecular Pharmacology PhD Training Program
The Molecular Pharmacology PhD Training Program at NYU School of Medicine’s Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences trains doctoral candidates in molecular and biochemical pharmacology. The program emphasizes pharmacology and drug discovery in five major areas: cancer signaling pathways and targets; structural biology, bioinformatics, and drug design; receptor pharmacology and therapeutics; development of therapeutic agents; and neurodegenerative disorders.
As a doctoral student in the program, you have the opportunity to gain research experience in a variety of areas, including growth factor–mediated signal transduction in mammalian and model organism systems, tyrosine kinase receptors, RNA interference technology, genomic stability, transcriptional regulation, steroid/nuclear hormone receptors, toxicology, proteomics, protein structure, computational biology, and in silico modeling for drug discovery.
