Pharmacology Research & Perspectives

PR & P

Pharmacology Research & Perspectives (PR&P) is an Open Access journal addressing preclinical and clinical pharmacology, education and fundamental and applied pharmacology, including articles that disprove a hypothesis. It is a leading outlet for drug discovery and development programs.

Jointly published by the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) and the British Pharmacological Society (BPS), PR&P publishes a range of article types:  Target validation; Drug discovery research and reviews; Frontiers in translational medicine; Pharmacological hypotheses and Replication studies. 

Attracting a global readership and Indexed by Scopus, Medline and ESCI, PR&P is a great place to publish. Publishing Open Access offers your paper maximum accessibility and visibility worldwide, our subject coverage is broad based, content is welcomed from Academic, R&D and Early career researchers, decision times are fast and we are happy to receive pre-submission inquiries.

UT Health San Antonio


Physiology and Pharmacology is a discipline within the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Health San Antonio.

The Physiology and Pharmacology Discipline encompasses the study of fundamental mechanisms of normal and disease function, and pharmacological intervention. Investigators seek to integrate information from molecular, cellular and organ/system levels to spur discoveries, and improve drug treatments for disease. Using sophisticated genetic and molecular tools, and behavioral approaches, our scientists are unraveling the fundamental mechanisms that underlie tissue and cellular physiology, and how these processes are compromised in injury and disease.

UT Health San Antonio is renowned for its seminal contributions in many areas including cardiovascular physiology, neurophysiology and the physiological basis of aging. Internationally recognized research expertise is assembled in areas of neuropharmacology, cancer pharmacology, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, addiction and pain research.

University of Minnesota

University of Minnesota

Pharmacology at the University of Michigan has a 125-year history of healing through discovery. More than any other basic science discipline, pharmacology is tightly connected to the understanding and treatment of human disease. At U-M, trainees can be involved in the discovery of new drugs, modeling of drugs and their targets, detailed studies of drug mechanisms in disease from biochemical, molecular, and genetic perspectives, and translational studies aimed at moving drugs into the clinic. Our trainees have gone on to become pharmaceutical company executives, research directors, and senior scientists, directors of government research labs, and recognized chairs and faculty in academia. Explore the many training opportunities we offer, including summer internships, masters and doctoral programs, and postdoctoral fellowships.

Emory University

Emory University Pharmacology

The Department of Pharmacology at Emory University, established in 1929, is proud to be celebrating 90 years of discovery, training, and impact. 

In recognition of the exciting new possibilities that today’s biomedical research landscape offers for discovery, innovation and education, the Department has changed its name.

We are pleased to announce the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology within the Emory University School of Medicine, home to the Emory Chemical Biology Discovery Center, and the Center for Functional Evaluation of Rare Variants.

Emory Pharmacology has impacted the past growth and success of ASPET by contributing five ASPET presidents, and six Editors of ASPET journals. We look forward to further service opportunities to help propel ASPET to new heights in the future.

In addition to internationally recognized faculty and innovative research, the Department offers graduate training opportunities in Molecular and Systems Pharmacology, Neuroscience, Cancer Biology, and Biochemistry, Cell and Developmental Biology.

University of Florida

University of Florida

Undergraduate students accepted into the ASPET SURF Program in the Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics at the University of Florida will perform basic research in Pharmacology & Therapeutics while studying interactions between biological systems and chemical agents.  SURF fellows will work in the laboratory of an individual faculty member. The program includes weekly discussion sessions with faculty members on selected research topics in Pharmacology, a brownbag lunch discussion series featuring guest speakers from around campus and a field trip to the UF Innovate Sid Martin Biotech Complex.  Fellows will also participate in our Pharmacology Immersion Program, or PIP, which is a four-day immersive lecture, discussion, and laboratory methods program and is held during the early part of the program. Fellows will gain experience in basic biomedical research, be introduced to the disciplines of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, and have the opportunity to present data in a typical graduate student seminar setting.
