“Clinical Pharmacology is a discipline dedicated to the bench-to-bedside study of drug action through an in-depth knowledge of human pharmacology and therapeutics”

Welcome to the Division of Clinical Pharmacology. We are a Division within in the Department of Medicine at the University of Western Ontario Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Our faculty is dedicated to advancing our knowledge of determinants of variation in drug disposition, adverse drug reactions, and to uncover novel mechanisms of drug action. We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to studying drug responsiveness in health and disease.
