Program Description

Just as cars are useless without roads, drugs are useless without effective delivery systems. This is especially important in contemporary pharmaceutical research, as new chemical entities may be either too hydrophobic (e.g., many anticancer drugs) or hydrophilic and highly labile (e.g., nucleic acids). The Bouvé College of Health Sciences School of Pharmacy pharmaceutics students and faculty are developing the routes for bringing small-molecule drugs and biological therapies directly to target cells responsible for major diseases.

Our comprehensive pharmaceutical sciences MS program includes faculty members in pharmaceutics and drug development specializing in the use and delivery of therapeutics. The program faculty seeks to improve the understanding and description of how chemical and physical properties of drugs and dosage forms affect drug performance in healthy and diseased systems. Graduate students may choose from programs concentrating in:

-Novel drug delivery systems
-Biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics
-Physical pharmacy and polymeric dosage form development
-Drug metabolism

With a strong focus on nanotechnology-based advanced delivery systems that address contemporary therapeutic needs, the pharmaceutical sciences program also gives students opportunities to study with some of the world’s top pharmaceutics researchers. Students in the pharmaceutical sciences MS program have the option of performing industrial internships (typically during the summer) in some of the most prestigious pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the Boston area.
