Program Description

The Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program (PSGP) provides graduate instruction and training in drug discovery, drug delivery and targeting, biophysical chemistry, bio-materials nanotechnology, nanomedicine, biopharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics as well as pharmacodynamics. The program uses the faculty and resources in the College of Pharmacy, Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer and Allied Diseases, College of Dentistry, and the various Departments in the College of Medicine. After receiving approval from the University of Nebraska’s Board of Regents, in 2004, the College of Pharmacy established a Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine. This Center was established as a result of the emphasis in the Department on drug delivery and nanomedicine with an important aim to promote multidisciplinary research with scientists on this campus, with other universities and industry. Researchers in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences have interests in developing new drugs to treat malaria and diseases of the eye as well as delivering and/or targeting small and large molecular weight drugs or genes to treat cancer, ophthalmic, lung, bone, cardiovascular and other diseases.

Students are admitted into the PSGP to obtain either a Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree. Four to five years are usually required to complete the requirements of the PhD degree. For each student, a course of study involving formal course work and original laboratory research is developed and approved by their Advisory/Supervisory Committee. Depending upon a student’s background and area of research interest, core courses are taken in subjects such as, medicinal chemistry, spectroscopy, biophysical chemistry, physical pharmacy, innovative drug delivery, polymer therapeutics, quantitative drug delivery, pharmacokinetics, molecular biology, immunology and statistics. All students are actively involved in weekly seminars and journal clubs.

Other Admission Requirements

Under special circumstances, students with a cumulative GPA below 3.0 will be considered for admission in the PSGP and admitted with PROVISIONAL status. The provisional status will be removed by maintaining a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.0 in the first two semesters.

Financial Support

Tuition Waiver, Stipend, Research Assistantship, Teaching Assistantship, Department or University Scholarship
Ph.D. students are supported by either Teaching Assistantships (TAs) or Research Assistantships (RAs) stipends.
Tuition is waived for Ph.D. students.
For Ph.D. students, Teaching Assistantships (TAs) are awarded to selected first year students for one year only. In extraordinary circumstances, the TA may be renewed for a second year.
