Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology

The Institute of Pharmacology sees its task in a combination of internationally recognized research and high-quality teaching with the aim of improving pharmacotherapeutic care. In this way, we also want to strengthen the reputation of the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University.

The staff of the Institute of Pharmacology uses a variety of modern techniques in their research: numerous analytical and biochemical methods, all important cell biological and molecular biological techniques, genetically modified animal models and experiments on isolated organs. The current research of the Institute is mainly in the fields of cardiovascular and urogenital pharmacology, immunopharmacology, drug safety and women's health research.

The Institute's lecturers provide modern, high-quality teaching in General Pharmacology and Toxicology and in Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy, which is regularly rated as outstanding by students of human medicine, dentistry and natural sciences. The Institute offers students of medicine and natural sciences (biology, pharmacy, biomedicine, biomedical chemistry and chemistry) a wide range of research opportunities to obtain academic degrees (BSc, MSc, MD, Ph.D.).
