The Department of Pharmacology admits 12 - 15 graduate students per year and offers comprehensive facilities for research in a modern building located in the centre of Cambridge and well-equipped for postgraduate training. Research Studentships to study for the Ph.D degree are awarded on a competitive basis and supported by the research councils, medical research charities, industrial sponsors and by University schemes. In addition to these funding opportunities the Department also offers studentships, including The David James Studentship.

The research areas of the Department include: molecular and cellular mechanisms of secretion and neurotransmitter release; receptor cycling; use of atomic force microscopy to investigate molecular structure; molecular mechanisms of sensation; neurodegeneration; control of appetite; mechanisms controlling sleep and appetite; drug action on membrane permeability and regulation of ion channels; angiogenesis and natural products; ion channel structure and function; receptor/intracellular messenger transduction mechanisms; vascular pharmacology; and anticancer drug resistance.

Open day 2016 on the LHS

The University of Cambridge is hosting its first Postgraduate Open Day on Wednesday 2 November 2016.

Attending the open day is an excellent way to explore the graduate courses and opportunities available at the University of Cambridge. Throughout the day there will be a variety of subject presentations, sample lectures and facility tours that will allow you to gain insight into life as a postgraduate student at Cambridge.

We are in the midst of confirming our full programme of events for the day which will be available two weeks prior to the open day. You will also have the opportunity to pre-book activities with the Colleges and Departments that interest you.
