We have strived to build an outstanding group of faculty mentors whose research expertise lies in many areas along the drug discovery and development process. Our group of training faculty consists of 49 members, eleven of whom hold primary appointments in the Department of Pharmacology. The other faculty members hold primary appointments in the Departments of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry, Chemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, Environmental Health Sciences, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, Neuroscience, Oncology, and Urology. Our training faculty are dedicated mentors who foster the inclusive research environment that is key to the success of our training program.
The diverse backgrounds and previous experience of our trainees greatly enhance the Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences Training Program. We are committed to recruiting and training a strong, diverse group of trainees, and welcome all applicants without discrimination, including: applicants from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, groups with disabilities, trainees from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, the LGBTQ community, women, and international students. As a result, the diversity within our training program places our program in the top third most diverse programs of all Johns Hopkins PhD programs.
Currently, over 40 students are pursuing doctoral degrees in the department with over 400 additional Ph.D. candidates in other basic science departments of the School of Medicine.
An equal number of medical students and more than 1,000 students in the Bloomberg School of Public Health share the campus of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.
