pharmaceuticsPharmaceutics is the study of the physical and chemical properties of drugs and their dosage forms. Also addressed are topics in theoretical/computational chemistry and molecular modeling which enable rational computer-assisted drug modification and design.

Biopharmaceutics and Pharmacokinetics involves investigation of the factors that influence the absorption, distribution, excretion, and metabolism of drugs, and the mathematical description of these processes.

Drug Delivery, Pharmaceutical Processing and Material Science focuses on the novel applications of pharmaceutical excipients to target drugs to specific sites in the body; to solve problems related to solubility, stability, dissolution rate and bioavailability; and to utilize advanced processing technologies to design innovative drug delivery systems.
