Program Description

Students studying pharmaceutics and drug delivery will be thoroughly exposed to the fundamentals of physical pharmacy and pharmaceutics and trained in several specialized areas, including:
-Novel drug delivery systems
-Nanomedical technologies
-Biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics

With exposure to these facets of the pharmaceutical sciences, successful graduates are poised to understand and assimilate the field of modern pharmaceutics. A PhD degree in pharmaceutics is a research degree. While coursework plays an important role, students become active participants in the science of pharmaceutics in the laboratory. Faculty research in pharmaceutical sciences covers a broad range of scientific interests, including pharmacokinetic toxicodynamics of anticancer agents; use of novel biomaterials and synthetic polymeric systems in designing small-molecule drug delivery systems for small molecules, proteins, and nucleic acids; passive and active targeting of therapeutic agents for cancer and cardiovascular diseases; novel delivery systems for immunostimulating purposes; and mathematical modeling of endogenous compounds.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT INFORMATION
Applicants who have degree coursework from institutions outside of the United States must submit a credential evaluation. We require the iCAP WES package that evaluates your transcripts course by course. Transcript evaluations will allow our reviewers to better understand the educational system in which you studied. We will not review international applicants without the transcript evaluation.
