Department of Pharmacology


The Department provides enthusiastic support for early career scientists who wish to establish their own research programmes and laboratories through fellowships such as Wellcome Career Development Awards or UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships. The Department has over 30 research groups with interests that fall broadly into the following areas:

  • Ion channels, receptors and transporters
  • Mechanisms of drug action
  • Molecular therapeutics, target discovery and drug development
  • Pain mechanisms

The Department offers a dynamic environment where our research programmes benefit from state-of-the-art facilities and from a thriving working environment.

If you are interested in obtaining the Department's support for application to granting agencies, it is very important that you discuss your potential application with current members of the Department. If you are unsure about who to contact, please email the Department Head, Professor Laura Itzhaki,  who will identify a faculty member for you to discuss your potential application.
