Pharmaceutics is a multidisciplinary science that examines the development, production and characterization of dosage forms, as well as the disposition and action of drugs in the body.
As pharmaceutical scientists have been engaged in the development of novel biomaterials for sophisticated drug delivery systems, scientists in this field have expanded into research with applications in the development of medical devices and tissue engineering.
Our faculty members are engaged in training and research in three focus areas:
