About us

Welcome on the homepage of the Institute for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology.

Our research focuses on the pharmacology of the brain at the interface of immune system, metabolism and cerebral blood flow. We teach pharmacology and toxicology, clinical pharmacology, and clinical environmental medicine for students of medicine, molecular life sciences and at the University of Applied Sciences.
