The Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Engineering track focuses on drug formulation, development, and delivery.
Areas of emphasis include:
the application of physical, physical-organic, and analytical chemistry to solve pharmaceutical problems,
the design, development, and optimization of dosage forms for small and large molecules, and
fundamental research in materials science and nanotechnology to advance drug delivery systems design.
Collaborations with faculty in the UK College of Engineering provide additional opportunities for a combined pharmaceutical and engineering research program. In addition, faculty participate in pre-clinical and/or clinical projects through collaborative relationships within the College of Pharmacy and with investigators across the UK Medical Center Complex.
