Medicine Making News: A Timeline of Historical Achievements

Clinical Pharmacology

By the 1950s Weill Cornell Medical College was at the vanguard of solidifying clinical pharmacology – the study of the effect of drugs on the human body – as a specialized field in medicine. Since 1975, under the leadership of former Division Chief Dr. Marcus M. Reidenberg, the Division of Clinical Pharmacology has thrived. This has included productive collaborations with the Department of Pharmacology. Weill Cornell was one of the first medical schools in the country to designate pharmacology as a separate department (1908).
