Pharmacology is an exciting area of biomedical science that studies the action of drugs and other compounds on living organisms. Its goal is to discover the cellular and molecular mechanisms of various substances and to develop new pharmacotherapeutic strategies and drugs for treatment and diagnosis of human diseases.


The current research focus at the Department of Pharmacology is on neuropharmacology. We investigate the possible neuroprotective mechanisms of action of existing drugs and new compounds in different neurodegenerative disease models. In the field of research the Department of Pharmacology is collaborating with Latvian and international institutions, carrying out various collaboration projects.
