Clinical Pharmaceutical Scientist


The Clinical Pharmaceutical Scientist is a specialty track/program in which students with expertise in pharmacotherapeutics investigate both the clinical and mechanistic elements of drug therapy issues.

  • You will learn experimental design, experimental methods, data analysis, and data interpretation of human-based research projects.
  • You will study how research discoveries are translated into practices that promote health and prevent disease.
  • You will learn the process required to implement new therapies as standards of care through human-based research projects.
