Program Description

The doctoral program in pharmaceutical Sciences at LIU is designed to prepare students to meet the challenges and the current needs of scientists engaged in the pharmaceutical sciences and drug development process. This program offers a blend of didactic and elective courses in the basic material sciences and mathematics, drug delivery, biopharmaceutics/pharmacokinetics, and other areas related to academic and industrial research. After completing a broad-based core of fundamental courses, all students are required to perform original research in a specialized area, culminating in a dissertation. The program is designed so Ph.D. students have considerable flexibility in selecting areas of research for the Ph.D. project.

LIU offers two specialty tracks in the PhD Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences: Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology/Toxicology
