Environmental and Molecular Mechanisms of Health and Disease
The “Environmental and Molecular Mechanisms of Health and Disease” seminar series is an invited seminar series in which faculty from the Division of Pharmacology & Toxicology invite leading scientists in the field to present their work at UT Austin.
The seminar series intends to reach a wide biomedical research audience, including faculty, students and trainees in the Division of Pharmacology & Toxicology, other divisions within the College of Pharmacy, other Colleges on campus at UT Austin (such as the College of Natural Sciences, of Biomedical Engineering, and of Medicine), and the branch campus of M.D. Anderson at Science Park.

Seminar in Alcohol Studies
This graduate course (PHR 189Q) is a seminar offered under the auspices of the Alcohol Training Grant. It meets weekly in the fall and spring semesters on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am with the Waggoner Center for Alcohol & Addiction Research (WCAAR) group. The format varies from formal seminars given by invited experts in an area of alcohol research to informal discussions of recent articles from the alcohol research literature to presentations of current research being performed in the labs of faculty affiliated with the Alcohol Training Grant. Topics include but are not limited to molecular and cellular mechanisms of action of ethanol on brain and other organ systems, behavioral analysis of ethanol actions, clinical studies, and psychosocial aspects of ethanol drinking behavior in humans.
All faculty, post-docs, and students who are interested in the multifaceted problems associated with alcohol use and abuse are invited to attend. Suggestions for speakers and topics are always welcome.
