Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences researchers conduct clinical and basic research.

They identify specific ways that individuals, groups of people, and large patient populations react to drugs; and the genetic, environmental, and/or other factors that are responsible for those drug therapy outcomes. In doing so, they discover new drug targets, advance the science of human pharmacology and therapeutics, and work to ensure the safe, effective and economical use of medications.

The research area involves experimental and clinical pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenetics and the requirements for regulatory approval of new drugs.
