Seminar Series

Our seminar series brings distinguished experts in pharmacology and toxicology to campus and gives our faculty a forum to present their new research.

Over the academic year, our department organizes talks on topics such as receptor pharmacology, cancer research, behavioral neuroscience, and drug abuse. Most months we host 3 or 4 events.

All members of the department, as well as the general public, are invited to attend. Our graduate students are expected to attend, to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research and to network with leaders in the field. 

In addition to our regular seminar series, we regularly host named lectures including the following:

Pioneers in Neuroscience Lecture Series

We have coordinated with the Department of OphthalmologyNeuroscience Program and the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute to develop a speakers series featuring prominent neuroscientists conducting research with strong interdisciplinary components. 

Douglas S. Riggs Lecture in Pharmacology

The Riggs Lecture is presented annually by an invited speaker dedicated to pharmacology teaching and mentorship.
