About Us

The department of pharmacodynamics is highly integrative and collaborative, spanning the gap between cellular and systems physiology. Faculty study the mechanisms of normal physiology, pathophysiology and drug action in stress, anxiety, addiction, pain, neuroinflammation and cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. These researchers are successful in securing millions of dollars in grant funding each year from sources such as NIH, NIMH, the Department of Defense and the American Heart Association. In addition, the department offers a doctoral degree program that allows aspiring scientists to study under the direction of pharmacodynamics faculty and collaborate across the health science campus at the University of Florida.
