The program is aimed at designing effective new drug therapies while minimizing adverse effects. Students in the Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Design program of The University of Montana will receive didactic and laboratory training in the design and development of pharmacological compounds including the disciplines of molecular and cellular pharmacology and pharmacodynamics (drug target and biomarker discovery), medicinal chemistry (drug design and synthesis), pharmacokinetics (drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination), pharmaceutics (drug delivery and formulation), and toxicology (drug-induced toxicity). Research in the program includes a diverse range of therapeutic areas including cancer, cardiovascular, dermatological, immune-mediated, and neurological diseases.
The Graduate Program is highly collaborative within the broader University of Montana research community with diverse opportunities for study and research at the interface of chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics with emphases on issues of pharmaceutical and biomedical importance. Faculty in the program are also closely aligned with several multidisciplinary research Centers at the University of Montana including the Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics, the Center for Environmental Health Sciences, and the Center for Structural for Functional Neuroscience.
