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.
In addition to close collaborations with faculty in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry, they work extensively with colleagues in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Washington, including neurology, gastroenterology, radiology, surgery, anesthesiology, oncology, microbiology, environmental health and epidemiology, and the Washington Regional Primate Research Center.
The Department of Pharmaceutics is affiliated with many organizations here on campus as well as off campus. Learn more about these Research Affiliations.
Since 1994, we have been fortunate to operate most of our research and instructional programs in modern facilities housed within the H-wing of the University of Washington Health Sciences Center. With the exceptional caliber of our faculty and quality of our research, we have been able to attract outstanding students to our graduate program. Our association with the pharmaceutical industry brings an awareness of new advances in pharmacotherapeutics to our students with a critical evaluation of the potential impact this will have on their future careers.
