Welcome to the Department of Pharmacology

About The Department

We are engaged in the investigation of basic questions concerning the interaction of chemical substances with biological systems. 

Several projects are undertaken in collaboration with other departments in the Faculties of Physiological Sciences and Clinical Medicine. The aim is to develop an understanding of fundamental mechanisms in chemical physiology and pathology, in the action of drugs, and in toxicology.
