Molecular Pharmacology

Journal Cover Image

Published since 1965, Molecular Pharmacology presents findings derived from the application of innovative structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, genetics, and molecular biology to basic pharmacological problems that provide mechanistic insights that are broadly important for the fields of pharmacology and toxicology. Relevant topics include molecular signaling/mechanism of drug action, chemical biology/drug discovery, structure of drug-receptor complex, systems analysis of drug action, and drug transport/metabolism.
