Dean Thomas A. Baillie
The Future of PharmacyIn October 2008, the School welcomed Thomas Baillie, Ph.D., D.Sc., as its newest dean. Baillie previously served as a professor of medicinal chemistry in the School from 1981 to 1994. He took the helm of the School of Pharmacy after holding major leadership positions in the private research industry.
Baillie is focusing on strengthening the School’s legacy as one of the best Schools of Pharmacy in the country — known for its excellence in pharmacy education, pharmaceutical research and public health. He is also helping to expand the School’s impact on programs across the health sciences at the University of Washington.
The School continues to prepare future generations of student leaders to respond adeptly to ever-changing systems of health care, pharmacy practice and research. And its faculty and students remain key players in the advancement of pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical research and patient advocacy.
In short, under Baillie’s leadership, the UW School of Pharmacy is positively impacting health care and human health, regionally and beyond.
