Training Grant in Pharmacological Sciences

Dr. Steven Gross, Director

Dr. Roberto Levi, Co-Director

The Pharmacology Training Grant provides support for pre-doctoral training in the Department of Pharmacology. Our program is inter-departmental and inter-institutional, comprising a faculty of distinguished investigators assembled from Weill Cornell Medical College and the Sloan-Kettering Institute. These institutions provide an exceedingly rich research environment, including state-of-the-art instrumentation and core facilities, generous space allocation to the Pharmacology Program, and a continuing commitment to recruiting the brightest and best new faculty.

The faculty mentors in the Pharmacology Training Program form a cohesive group of world-class investigators with a strong record for training productive young scientists. Our faculty members have diverse research interests, providing opportunities for training in a broad range of areas, including molecular, cellular, and systems pharmacology. Primary research interests include:

  • Chemical and structural biology
  • Cell signaling
  • Cardiovascular pharmacology
  • Cancer
  • Neuropharmacology

This Training Grant enables the Program in Pharmacology to recruit and support the best candidates. With the combined contributions of pharmacology-oriented coursework, top-tier mentorship and use of the latest research technologies to tackle major biomedical problems, our Program seeks to endow its Pharmacology Trainees with intellectual and technical skills for productive careers in biomedical research, oriented toward development of new therapies for human diseases.
