The PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences (PSC) program is divided into three programs in Chemical and Biology Discovery, Translational Therapeutics, and Pharmacometrics.

Students select a mentor from one program under which to pursue their doctoral research, though faculty often work together as part of the program's highly collaborative environment. Explore the links below to learn more about each faculty member.

Chemical and Biological Discovery Program:

Faculty in this program are engaged in research at the interface of biology, chemistry, and computational sciences to explore biological mechanisms in the development of novel new technologies and therapeutics.
