Is a Ph.D. right for you? A person with a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences has the training to carry out cutting-edge, laboratory research to discover or develop drugs for the treatment of human diseases or study how the human body reacts to drugs.

The Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy offers exciting opportunities for students seeking training in the areas of Drug Discovery and Development, Clinical and Experimental Therapeutics and Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy. Students that obtain Ph.D. training in our program are highly valued by the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies and academia. The Drug Discovery Division encompasses the fields of medicinal chemistry, drug design, cell signaling, clinical pharmacology and experimental therapeutics. The Drug Development Division explores the areas of pharmaceutics, novel drug delivery systems and pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics. The Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy track focuses on the relationship between pharmacotherapy and health outcomes, pharmacoeconomics, pharmacoepidemiology, informatics and pharmaceutical policy. Many of the researchers in our College play integral roles in the economic development of Kentucky through their patents and development of intellectual property within numerous start-up companies. All accepted students receive a competitive stipend, paid tuition and health insurance. Your path to employment within the pharmaceutical industry begins here.

This Open House will be especially useful for students who are currently a junior or senior in Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, and Social Sciences and who have a GPA >3.2

* A Ph.D. is not a Pharm. D. The Pharm. D. degree is for individuals who wish to become state-licensed, practicing pharmacists.
