Pharmacology Core

Co-Directors:Tom Ellenberger, DVM, PhD and Evan Kharasch, MD, PhD

The Pharmacology Core is dedicated to providing the broad base of sophisticated analytical equipment and expertise in pharmacology required for preclinical and clinical investigations of anti-cancer drugs and related therapies. The core provides:

  • Analytical support for basic and clinical scientists at the Siteman Cancer Center that would not otherwise be available

  • Expertise for design of more informative and innovative therapeutic studies.

  • Pharmacology information to provide education and training to students, postdoctoral fellows and investigators in the performance of pre-clinical/clinical pharmacology studies.

LOCATION: Clinical Sciences Research Building, Room 1021

As of April 7, 2008, the NIH requires investigators with a publication using Siteman (or other NIH-funded) shared resources to submit (or have submitted for them) their final, peer reviewed manuscripts to PubMed Central(PMC) upon acceptance of publication, to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication. Many journals automatically submit these for authors, but Washington University also has assistance available through the Becker Medical Library. Please see or for more information.
