Frontiers in Pharmacology Lecture Series 2010-2011
Each year the Department of Pharmacology invites distinguished researchers to present their work on topics broadly related to pharmacology. Topics range from those closely aligned with the research interests of the department to areas of interest to researchers across the UC Davis campus and the UC Davis School of Medicine. All seminars are held on Fridays at 10 a.m.
