Undergraduate Research

The Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology provides an opportunity for undergraduate students at UCLA to participate in laboratory research under the direction of Pharmacology faculty mentors. The department’s research interests spans a broad range of studies by integrating biological, physical, engineering and medical sciences to explore mechanisms of disease from a single cell to a whole organism level and developing new molecular diagnostic technologies and molecular therapeutics. Interested students can learn more about our faculty research here.

Upon identifying a faculty mentor, undergraduate students can take part in research by enrolling in the UCLA Student Research Programs (SRP) courses.

In addition, students who are enrolled in the Biomedical Research Minor can conduct their research in the laboratories of Pharmacology faculty.
