Research Facilities


The School of Pharmacy is the sole occupant of Faser Hall, a four-story building completed in 1969, housing the teaching and research activities of the faculty and students. The fourth floor of Faser Hall, which houses the majority of The Department of Medicinal Chemistry laboratory and office space, was fully renovated in 2005. Renovation of the third floor of Faser Hall began in 2008 and is scheduled to be completed in 2010.

All members of the Medicinal Chemistry faculty hold joint appointments with the Research Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. In 1989, the Institute received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a National Center for Natural Products Research. Phase I provided 115,000 gross square feet of space for multiple use including state-of-the-art research laboratories, offices, conference space, classrooms, major instrument and computer facilities, a Science Library and an animal care facility. This $27.5 million Center was occupied in Summer, 1995. A Phase II 120,000 gross square feet addition to the National Center for Natural Products Research is planned with construction scheduled to commence in 2011.
