Welcome to the website of the Department of Pharmacology at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. As a result of the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act, RWJMS, founded in 1966 as Rutgers Medical School, rejoined Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, on July 1, 2013.
The Department of Pharmacology is committed to fulfilling its roles in education, research and service, both locally and on a broader scale. Our faculty contributes to the education of medical, graduate and undergraduate students in the classroom and in the laboratory; carries out research at the forefront of biomedical science while training the next generation of research scientists; and serves the medical school, university, national and international scientific communities.
I am delighted to have been named permanent Chair on December 1 st, 2017, as the department now enters a new phase of growth.
Please explore the research interests of our faculty, become familiar with the Department of Pharmacology, and contact us with any questions.
Nancy C. Walworth, PhD
