Methylmercury (MeHg) disrupts cerebellar function, especially during development. Cerebellar granule cells (CGC), which are particularly susceptible to MeHg by unknown mechanisms, migrate during this process.
An endocannabinoid system is present in the mouse olfactory epithelium but does not modulate olfaction.

Congratulations to the SUMMER 2014 graduates of our MS in Pharmacology & Toxicology program
The National Institute of Health / National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has awarded a grant to Michigan State University ( P.I. Dr. Stephanie Watts, Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology ) for the project “Chemerin as a Link Between Obesity and Blood Pressure”
"Most of the time, Sheri Hicks doesn’t wear makeup or style her hair. It isn’t because she doesn’t care about how she looks or doesn’t want to be bothered. It’s because she physically can’t do it. Hicks, 42, of Farmington has an autoimmune disorder called scleroderma, which causes fibrosis, or the thickening and hardening of the skin, along with pain, sensitivity to heat and cold and other effects."
U-M and MSU researchers have joined together to develop novel compounds for the treatment of scleroderma, supported by a three-year, $2M award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). "Dr. [Scott] Larsen is a member of a team of basic science and clinician researchers at U-M and MSU who have joined forces to further the development of novel compounds for the treatment of scleroderma. The initial discovery was made by Dr. Richard Neubig, chair of the pharmacology and toxicology department at Michigan State University, via high-throughput screening at the Center for Chemical Genomics at the U-M Life Sciences Institute."
Congratulations to the Spring 2014 graduates of our MS in Pharmacology & Toxicology program.
