Video about the pharmaceutical sciences graduate program at The University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy.

The college offers M.S. and Ph.D. level degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences with specializations in:

Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy
Molecular mechanisms of chemical carcinogenesis; mutation and repair; combinatorial chemistry; solid-phase peptide synthesis; screening, isolation and structure elucidation of physiologically-active natural products; biosynthesis of microbial and plant natural products; herbal medicine, bioinformatics.

Pharmaceutics and Pharmacokinetics
Design, development, production, evaluation and regulatory approval of pharmaceutical and self-care products as well as pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies using virtual, clinical, and preclinical data, often with an emphasis on population approaches.

Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics
Health and economic outcomes research pertaining to pharmacotherapy as used in human populations. Specializations include medication adherence, decision and cost-effectiveness analyses, post-marketing surveillance, epidemiologic methods, and quality improvement and measurement.

Pharmacology and Toxicology
Mechanisms involved in disease states and their pharmacological intervention, and mechanisms of toxicity of environmental agents. On-going topics include the effects of hormonal imbalances on cardiac function and metabolism in hypertension, biomarkers and treatment of arthritis, developmental neurotoxicity of environmental agents, hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity of heavy metals, pharmacogenomics, drug interactions, hepatic responses to neuractive chemicals, hormonal regulations of gene expression in breast cancer; drug metabolism and drug transporter, and the development of inhibitors to cell signaling events.
