Welcome to Department of Pharmacology and Clinical Neuroscience

The department consists of two units: Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology and Clinical Neuroscience. The units conduct research and teaching in the areas of pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, neurology, neurosurgery and clinical neurophysiology.

The Department has both preclinical and clinical units. The Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacology units are primarily focussed on the mechanisms of drug action, targets for new drugs, and the use and consequences of drug treatment in society. The Clinical Neuroscience units are focussed upon the understanding and treatment of neurological disorders. The teaching responsibilities of the Department are both preclinical and clinical, and we are involved both in Medical, Dental and Pharmacy Assistant programmes as well as in the provision of voluntary courses to, among others, Biomedicine and Molecular Biology students.
