2011 Profile of Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology
The IPSTP is an interdisciplinary training program, available to Ph.D. students in Pharmacology & Toxicology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Neuroscience and Cell & Molecular Biology.
The next deadline for Spring Semester admission to the online masters programs is February 28, 2012. Email us for more information.
We are accepting applications to our doctoral program, via the new BioMolecular Sciences Gateway. MSU has organized six of the biological sciences graduate units under one umbrella, designated as the BioMolecular Science (BMS) Gateway.
Admissions and the first year of graduate studies are administered through the BMS. Students admitted through the BMS earn their degrees in one of the participating units. Prospective students with an interest in pursuing a PhD in Pharmacology & Toxicology may learn more about the BMS. Complete application instructions can be found here.
Email us for additional information.

High Flexibility, Endless Possibility
The disciplines of pharmacology and toxicology play a momentous role in human health today, and their applications in the professional world are vast.
At the Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology at Michigan State University, we combine integrative research, active learning and intellectual enrichment to prepare the student for advancement and leadership in their chosen field. From molecular and cellular levels to organ systems and whole animal models, our graduate and undergraduate programs encompass multiple areas of study, empowering students to challenge the boundaries of knowledge and chart their own unique path in the biomedical sciences.
At the Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology, our educational mission is three-fold:
(1) To prepare the next generation of biomedical scientists with interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and the technical, professional and personal skills to become leaders.
Considering a Career in Pharmacology or Toxicology?
(2) To teach the foundations of effective pharmacological diagnostics and therapies to students in the Colleges of Human, Osteopathic, and Veterinary Medicine.
(3) To instill the basic principles of pharmacology and toxicology that can be applied to all disciplines, thus expanding rather than narrowing students' future career opportunities.
