Research at UK College of Pharmacy
The faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and staff of the UK College of Pharmacy conduct front-line research in areas of pharmaceutics that range from identifying fundamental mechanisms of disease, to designing and developing new drugs, to understanding the impact of policies on health care. Funding for research projects in laboratories at the College of Pharmacy has more than doubled over the past five years and has generated discoveries and innovations that have brought international recognition.
The research interests of our faculty members can be organized broadly into five major areas: Medicinal, Bioorganic & Computational Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Engineering, Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics, Therapeutics, and Pharmaceutical Policy, with each area containing multiple more specific and descriptive sub-categories. The vitality of these research programs is evidenced by the many projects, often in multiple categories, that have been awarded nationally competitive funding and that are underway here in the College of Pharmacy. By clicking on any of the sub-categories you will find a list of the faculty who have an active research project in that particular field, and can access more detailed information on those projects by clicking on the name of the individual faculty member.
