  • About the Division

    The Division for Molecular Pharmacology (MP) serves members applying approaches of biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, and molecular biology to study molecular mechanisms of drug action, regardless of the class of drug. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to): drug receptor-effector coupling and its regulation (e.g. receptor structure/function, G proteins, kinases, phosphatases, and second messenger synthesis and degradation), voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels, antimicrobial and antineoplastic drug action, steroid and growth factor receptors, gene regulation, and identification of molecular targets for drugs.
