Future pharmaceutical scientists have the opportunity to train with more than 50 graduate faculty in the college's comprehensive graduate education program.
Graduate students are actively involved in the research activities in the UF College of Pharmacy. Research spans the entire life cycle of a drug and include broad interest areas such as medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacology, clinical and translational research, and pharmaceutical outcomes and policy. Our graduates contribute to advancing pharmaceutical sciences through positions in academia, industry and government agencies such as the FDA.
Led by award-winning faculty, these discoveries significantly impact the lives of patients around the world. The college achieved $32.3 million in total research funding in 2021 and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy ranks UF among the Top 5 pharmacy colleges nationally in NIH, federal grants and total funding. The collective talents of our world-class researchers and trainees has led to substantial growth in research funding in the last six years, with the expectation for even more growth in the coming years.
