Translating discoveries into better education for our students, economic benefits for our state and beyond and better health for our citizens.

UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy faculty understand that the practice and science of pharmacy is constantly changing — because they are the ones changing it. The number of primary faculty grew 69 percent from 2005 to 2014 and includes approximately 75 on-campus and 30 off-campus clinical practitioners and researchers who work on the leading edge of pharmaceutical practice and research.

Our faculty have dedicated themselves to breakthrough research, cutting-edge health-care methods and innovative instruction. External research funding rose 245 percent from 2004 to 2013 to approximately $23 million, second among the nation’s pharmacy schools. Discoveries by our faculty have resulted in 165 patents — 131 of which were issued in the last ten years — and a total of 19 spin-off companies.

Using a variety of methods to engage students in the classroom, in the lab and in experiential settings, our faculty help prepare students for a future in research, industry, practice or education. Their expertise translates directly to the quality of the education received by our professional and graduate students for whom they serve as teachers, mentors and preceptors.
