University of Wisconsin


The objective of the NIH T32-supported Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (MCP) Training Program is to equip students with the skills required to conduct high impact biomolecular, biomedical, and pharmacological basic research. The program assists students in becoming independent investigators in these research areas, facilitating their entry into careers in industry, academia, and beyond. Advances in biomedical sciences are often based on the development of new drugs, which improve and save the lives of millions of patients. Drugs with specific biochemical actions are also powerful research tools. They provide pharmacologists and other biomedical scientists unique research opportunities, which help to elucidate cellular signaling cascades. Students in the MCP program will develop expertise in the fundamentals of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology and solve a variety of problems in the basic biomedical sciences involving the design of research strategies for the discovery of novel drugs or gene therapy approaches.
