Associate Professor, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Dr. Patrick Marsac
Having received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering (2001) and a M.S. in Pharmaceutical Engineering (2002) from the University of Michigan, Patrick Marsac then graduated from Purdue University with a Ph.D. in Industrial and Physical Pharmacy (2007). He worked at Merck and Co. for 8 years and then joined UKY College of Pharmacy in September of 2015.
Advanced analytics of materials and associated implications in drug discovery and development.
Application of engineering principles to biological systems.
Thermodynamics and kinetics of phase changes of solid state pharmaceutical products.
