We Are Building Community.

You will feel a strong sense of community here—and not just among your pharmacy peers. We strongly encourage cross-disciplinary teaching and learning, so you can study pharmaceutical engineering, double-major in pharmacy and a language, or work with scientists in the environmental and physical sciences, nursing and social sciences.

We Are Opening New Doors.

Our $75 million state-of-the-art facility supports leading-edge teaching, research, and service activities. A key feature is a $6 million good manufacturing process facility, where you can learn best practices in drug product testing for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and private pharmaceutical companies.

We Are Teaching With Technology.

Our faculty use teaching tools such as real-time video conferencing and clicker technology, as well as 3D projection, animation and printing, allowing you to visualize complex drug actions. Our new building also features a sophisticated patient simulation lab, where you can work alongside fellow pharmacy students and pharmacists, as well as students and professionals from other disciplines.

We Are Leading Research.

Our faculty and students are conducting the highest quality research in pharmaceutical, biomedical, clinical, and population-based sciences. We’re also going deep into the forest—and the ocean—to find natural substances that could prevent and fight disease. Target areas include cancer, aging, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, HIV, infectious diseases, and disability.
