The Pharmacological Sciences Training Program (PSTP) at the University of Michigan is a unique collaboration between the Medical School and the College of Pharmacy that provides synergistic, translational education, research training, and career development with the ultimate goal of preparing our graduates to excel as leaders in the field of experimental therapeutics, both in the academy and in the private sector.  

PSTP trainees will develop a strong foundation in basic principles of pharmacology and medicinal chemistry and a broad knowledge of other related basic science disciplines including biochemistry, chemistry, and physiology so that they can ultimately direct cutting-edge research in pharmacology and therapeutics and address scientific questions from multiple perspectives.
