Welcome to IPOP

The need for professionally-trained translational pharmaceutical research scientists has never been greater. The pharmaceutical industry, state and national government agencies, academia, and the private sector are all working to address the multiple challenges facing healthcare. Our researchers in IPOP have a strong background in policy analysis, as well as an understanding of the unique regulatory and market environments for pharmaceuticals, putting us in a unique position to address outstanding healthcare needs.

Our Mission

To improve community and population health by generating and evaluating empirical evidence on the safe, efficient, and effective use of pharmaceuticals.

Seminar Announcements

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
