Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences

The Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences (DPMS) at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine seeks to discover, translate, and disseminate knowledge important for the development and application of new therapeutics. The DPMS pursues and promotes frontier research and training in diverse areas in drug discovery, protein chemistry, glyco- and lipid-pharmacology, anti-infective agents, oncology therapeutics, neuropharmacology, and clinical pharmacology. The DPMS also promotes the Hopkins core values of promoting diversity, maintaining high standards of safe and ethical behavior, and demonstrating civil and respectful conduct in all interactions with students, staff, and faculty colleagues.
