Program Description

The Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program (PSGP) provides education and training at an advanced level of a wide range of physical and biological sciences related to drug discovery and development processes. Graduates become experts in their chosen field of specialization, e.g., drug discovery, pharmaceutics, polymer-based drug delivery, biopharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, biophysical chemistry or nanomedicine. Our goal is to provide students with a combination of breadth and rigor of education so they can succeed as an independent researcher in academia, industry, or government. As a full member of the Globalization of Pharmaceutics Educational Network (GPEN) and with a very active American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AAPS) student chapter, all students in our program have the opportunity to present their research at national and international scientific meetings. Students with degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, material sciences, molecular biology, pharmacy, mathematics or related fields are encouraged to apply
