Students enroll in one of 5 concentrations in the University of Florida pharmaceutical sciences PhD program: medicinal chemistry, pharmacodynamics Pharmaceutical Sciences PhD program: medicinal chemistry, pharmacodynamics (physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology), pharmaceutics, clinical pharmaceutical sciences, and pharmaceutical outcomes and policy.

Students join the UF program from a variety of backgrounds – Pharm.D., chemistry, biology, statistics, epidemiology, and economics – and find opportunities to contribute to discoveries that will advance fundamental knowledge of disease, drug targets, and outcomes and that will advance patient care. Led by award-winning faculty, our students are trained in up to date tools of in AI-based and structure-based drug design, chemical synthesis and drug optimization, chemical and synthetic biology, comprehensive natural products science, pathophysiology and pharmacology, assay development, pharmacometrics, drug delivery, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine, pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomics, pharmaceutical health services research and the data sciences. Areas of research focus include cancer, infectious disease, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, maternal and child health, pain and addiction.
