The Department of Pharmacology and Physiology is committed to creating an environment of diversity and inclusivity in alignment with the core Jesuit mission and values of Saint Louis University. We welcome, respect, and value individuals with diverse viewpoints and life experiences. We especially welcome and support those who have been historically excluded due to race, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, ability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic level, or veteran status. We believe the strength of our department relies on, and requires, participation from every member of our community. We strive to uphold diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values in all that we do from educating and mentoring students and developing professionally as faculty and researchers, to investing in our wider community through outreach.
