Focusing on drug metabolism, transport, distribution and absorption to deliver the right medicine to the right patient at the right time.
The Department of Pharmaceutics works to promote the efficacy and safety of therapeutics through inclusive teaching and transformative research in the drug delivery and disposition sciences. Through work that span from molecular, cell- and organ-based studies in humans and animals and mathematical modeling and simulation techniques, our research and teaching focus on understanding the processes that determine the exposure and pharmacological response to drugs. We focus on physiological and disease processes, genetics and environmental impacts that alter metabolism, transport, distribution and absorption of drugs. The highly collegial Department faculty, students, post-doctoral fellows and staff pursue these multidisciplinary and translational goals through collaboration within the School of Pharmacy, University of Washington campus and national and international institutions.
