Courtney Andersen studies the role of estrogen receptor-alpha in ovarian cancer.
Chris Barnes investigates the structural details by which transcription factor activity regulates RNA Polymerase II during the universal process of eukaryotic gene expression.
Matthew Hedberg uses whole exome sequencing of human tumors, paired with functional studies in preclinical models of HNSCC, to define the genetic alterations underlying this disease, and identify new therapeutic targets.
Soma Jobaggy studies nitrated fatty acid pharmacology and the antioxidant response in hypertensive end-organ damage.
Allison Nagle studies growth factor receptor signaling in breast cancer.
David Osei-Hwedieh studies how hemoglobin mutations such as sickle cell trait affect red blood cell storage integrity and post transfusion survival.


Pharmacology is the study of the mechanisms of drug action. The Molecular Pharmacology Training Program (MPTP) of the University of Pittsburgh is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program that provides didactic research training in the basic and translational aspects of Pharmacology. The MPTP offers formal training through courses and provides research opportunities individually tailored to suit each student.


Our program offers training in the following areas:
