Frontiers in Pharmacology Lecture Series

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 in the Genome Building Auditorium at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays (per schedule below).
