PhD in Pharmaceutics
The Pharmaceutics (PCEUT) degree program is offered through the Division of Pharmaceutics and Translational Therapeutics (PTT).
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:
- Physical and Applied Pharmaceutics
- Drug Disposition and Dynamics
- Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering
Graduates of our program are placed throughout the pharmaceutical industry and academia. Industry representatives recruit on-site because of the esteemed reputation of our program.
