Faculty & Research Faculty in the Department of Pharmaceutics at the University of Washington represent both pioneers and current leaders in the Pharmaceutical Sciences. At the national level, our Pharmaceutics faculty has served in an advisory capacity to the federal government and pharmaceutical industry. They have also held national office in professional organizations such as AAPS and ASPET and are associate editors or serve on the editorial board of several journals within the pharmaceutics discipline.
What is Pharmaceutics? Pharmaceutics is the study of relationships between drug formulation, delivery, disposition and clinical response. At the University of Washington, it encompasses a molecular evaluation of drug metabolism and transport processes and the study of genetic, environmental and disease-related factors that regulate or perturb those processes, as well as the fundamental mathematical relationships between enzyme/transporter function, blood concentration-time profiles and the spectrum of pharmacological effects.  Our instructional and research programs emphasize a Physiologically-Based Approach to understanding and predicting Drug Delivery and Disposition.
Our Mission Our faculty provide training in biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics to students seeking the PharmD degree and licensure as a Pharmacist in the state of Washington. The Department is also responsible for the training of students seeking a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences as a prerequisite qualification for a career in the pharmaceutical industry, academia and with state and federal regulatory agencies. In addition to our instructional mission, the department conducts cutting edge research to create and disseminate new knowledge in the pharmaceutical sciences and to provide service to citizens of the State of Washington and national and international public communities.
