The pharmaceutics track is concentrated on the study of the design of pharmaceutical dosage
forms and their interaction with the human body. Topics included are physical pharmacy,
bioanalysis, drug delivery and targeting, drug metabolism, drug transport, pharmacokinetics
- You will develop a thorough understanding of how to apply principles of physical pharmacy
to dosage form design and optimization of drug product performance.
- You will develop the fundamentals required for design of both traditional and complex
state-of-the-art drug delivery systems and skills essential for the advancement of targeted
drug therapies using small molecules, proteins, peptides and other biomolecules, probiotics,
and tissue engineered platforms.
- You will gain knowledge of the human body and the interaction of medications with the human
body including metabolism, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
- Your research opportunities include formulation of dosage forms, development of novel delivery
systems and development of complex new therapies for site specific action, establishing novel
markers for disease, study of metabolic pathways, development of bioanalytical techniques, and
evaluation of absorption, distribution, and elimination of drug substances and their
