Program Description
-------------------
Program Description:
MS in Pharmacometrics and Personalized Pharmacotherapy is a new and unique graduate program focused on advanced training in pharmacometric principles of advanced pharmacokinetics (study of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of drugs) and pharmacodynamics (study of drug effects and toxicity in treatment of diseases).

With the fast-paced advancements in personalized medicine, there is a growing need for highly skilled pharmacometricians to fulfill critical roles in drug discovery and development in pharmaceutical industries, regulatory agencies and academia. UB’s novel program is one of only a few in the country providing this evidence-based instruction in drug therapy optimization.

The curriculum combines conceptual training with hands-on computational training in the integration of health and biomedical data, allowing students to partner with internationally-renowned faculty in high-level research and garner real-world job experience while still completing coursework. Graduates of the program have the skills necessary to deliver precision medicine and individualized therapies.
