A Unique Perspective

The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy provides a unique perspective among peer institutions in our approach to research. The School conducts a wide range of advanced research that aligns with five phases of the drug discovery, development and delivery cycle.

Each phase is represented by a division within the School. Faculty and graduate students alike are encouraged to work with their peers within the School and the University to further realize research goals in discovery, preclinical and clinical development of therapeutic agents, optimum delivery of drug therapy, evaluation of health and therapeutic outcomes of novel drug therapies and technologies, as well as regulatory policies.
