Scientific Focus

The Department of Pharmacology pursues both basic science projects and projects with the aim to solve medical problems. Basic science projects focus on the analysis of the molecular mechanisms of particular cellular signaling pathways (e.g. G-protein mediated signaling, G-protein-coupled receptors, semaphorin/plexin-system) and on the understanding of particular physiological processes in the mammalian organism. More medically oriented scientific projects deal with the mechanisms of pathophysiological processes and drug actions, in particular in the cardiovascular and metabolic system as well as in cancer with the option to carry the projects to a translational level.

Information on current research projects can be found here.
