  • Course description
    Just as cars are useless without roads, drugs are useless without an effective delivery system. This is especially important in contemporary pharmaceutical research as new chemical entitites are either too hydrophobic (e.g., many anticancer drugs) or hydrophilic and highly labile (e.g., nucleic acids). The Bouvé College of Health Sciences’ pharmaceutics faculty and students are developing the pathways that bring small molecule drugs and biological therapies directly to the target cells.

    Our comprehensive program in pharmaceutics has specialists in drug development and delivery who use many approaches to create and deliver treatments. Their goal is to better understand how the chemical and physical properties of drugs and their dosage forms affect drug performance in healthy and diseased systems. Graduate students may elect a program 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 needs, this concentration also gives you the opportunity to study with some of the world’s top researchers. Pharmaceutics students have the option of performing industrial internship during the summer in some of the most prestigious pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the area.
