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.
