Driving Healthcare Innovation:

Pioneering Complex Solutions to Improve Patients' Lives

UI College of Pharmacy researchers and their teams probe diverse fields of pharmacy. They ask questions such as:

  • How can we create new and better medicines, and new ways of delivering them?

  • If something in nature has disease-fighting properties but is in limited supply, can we recreate its molecular blueprint using more common materials and have more to work with?

  • How can we support the community pharmacists who want to do cutting-edge work for patients, but who insurance companies won't pay for those extra efforts?

  • What are the most successful pharmacists doing to keep medications safe, affordable, and effective for their patients? How can this be replicated worldwide?
