Department of Pharmaceutics
The Department of Pharmaceutics strives to embrace the goals of the School of Pharmacy and The University missions of excellence in teaching, research and service. More specifically, the unit’s primary missions include providing curricular content in the areas of physical pharmacy, basic pharmacokinetics, dosage forms and drug delivery systems, and bio-pharmaceutics in both the B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Doctor of Pharmacy professional degree programs. In addition the Department's educational mission is to educate Master’s and Ph.D. graduates with scientific competence in these related areas of expertise, including pre-formulation, formulation, pharmaceutical processing, biomaterials, polymer science, advanced pharmacokinetics and novel drug delivery systems. The Departmental faculty is also to provide this same expertise as members of multi-disciplinary teams, to scientific projects conducted in the National Center for Natural Product Research (NCNPR). Each faculty member must engage in independent scholarly pursuits and provide service to the School, the University and the discipline.
