Our degree programs meet your educational needs, whether you want time to explore or have research underway.
We foster engagement with the latest research in our field through our seminar series, the Upstate New York Pharmacology Society’s annual meeting (which we host) and frequent interdisciplinary collaborations.
Our faculty use powerful, innovative research techniques including optogenetics, computer-aided genomics and proteomics to address health issues from circadian rhythm disorders to multiple sclerosis, drug abuse and pesticide toxicity.
Our faculty labs include cutting-edge equipment for genomics and proteomics, cellular and molecular studies, behavioral neuropharmacology and much more.
We promote independent student research at every level.
