Message from the Chair

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the James Winkle College of Pharmacy at the University of Cincinnati.

The overall mission of the Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences is to advance the state of knowledge in the pharmaceutical sciences through our research in the discovery, design and action of therapeutic agents and health care products and to provide the highest level of instruction in pharmaceutical sciences in the PharmD and MS/PhD curricula. The division actively supports graduate education that leads to advanced degrees in the pharmaceutical sciences in order to provide highly trained scientists for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal care industries, government agencies, and academia.

The Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences currently consists of 16 full-time faculty.
