The Department of Biopharmaceutical Sciences:  Teaching and research in an environment of personal, professional and intellectual growth.

GENERAL SCOPE

The Department of Biopharmaceutical Sciences consists of scientists with expertise in pharmacology, pharmaceutics, pharmacogenomics, pharmacokinetics, cell and molecular biology, toxicology and forensic sciences, as well as other disciplines closely allied to these sciences. This expertise is utilized in, but not limited to evaluating sites and actions of drugs, determining mechanisms by which drugs act, identifying and quantifying factors influencing drugs, characterizing the nature of therapeutic and toxicological responses to drugs, characterizing the impact of the dosage formulations and delivery system on drug action, application of these areas of expertise in basic and translational research, and application of these areas of expertise in forensic arenas. Importantly, this expertise is brought to the education/teaching of college of pharmacy students.

GENERAL MISSION

The Department of Biopharmaceutical Sciences is committed to preparing pharmacy students and graduate students for their chosen careers in areas related to the departmental expertise. Educational experiences are provided by faculty members actively engaged in teaching and in research areas such as pharmacology, pharmaceutics, pharmacogenomics, pharmacokinetics, cell and molecular biology, toxicology, and forensic sciences. These faculty members perform innovative research, scholarly activity and undertake appropriate entrepreneurial activities. The faculty contributes to the excellence of the College of Pharmacy and University through effective committee, community, public service as well as teaching in areas of their expertise. The fulfillment of these responsibilities is directed toward increasing the understanding of drug delivery, drug action, and rational drug therapy in an environment of personal, professional and intellectual growth.
