The study of Pharmacology at Upstate Medical University has a long and distinctive history. As part of the College of Medicine, which was founded in 1834, and as one of the oldest medical colleges in the nation (graduating this country's first woman doctor in 1849), the Pharmacology Department has been an important contributor to the College and University. Our faculty excel in both research and teaching and our students are highly sought after by academia and industry. To continue our tradition of excellence in research and teaching and to stay at the forefront of the field, the Department is undertaking a multi-year effort to enhance our existing research strengths and expand into new areas, especially drug discovery and development, and cancer pharmacology.
