Education of the Next Generation

Curriculum with a real-world perspective

Through our graduate-level programs in areas such as drug design, regulatory affairs and entrepreneurship, we are preparing the next generation for academic and corporate careers. Members of the Center for Drug Discovery serve as faculty directors for these courses, enriching classroom and laboratory environments with real-world perspectives.

We offer a multitude of undergraduate and graduate level courses, ranging from the fundamental biology of molecular targets to the design of appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic agents to preclinical testing in animal models to development of good manufacturing practices. The College of Pharmacy additionally offers graduate certificate and non-thesis master's programs in regulatory and quality compliance. An interdisciplinary graduate-level degree in drug discovery is under development.
