Located on Temple University's bustling Health Sciences Center campus, the School of Pharmaceutical Science strives to bridge the gaps between drug discovery, preclinical basic research, and translation medicine.


We are positioned to continue to provide leadership in our educational mission, while also pursuing innovative research. In conjunction with both of these efforts, we train future researchers in pharmaceutical sciences, drug discovery and development, and basic preclinical and translational research.

In recent years, the School of Pharmaceutical Science at Temple University has enjoyed tremendous growth in our research enterprise. We have established several centers of excellence for scientific study across a wide range of disciplines. The Temple University Drug Discovery Initiative, launched in 2010, has resulted in a substantial expansion of our research facilities and an increase in the number of talented and accomplished researchers joining our faculty and staff.

Efforts by the faculty and research staff of the School of Pharmacy are focused on multidisciplinary approaches to complex scientific problems associated with a number of important disease states. Funding for our research has been generously provided by several foundations, federal and state-funded grants, contract research programs, and Temple University research awards. Members of our faculty have been recognized by outside scientific organizations with numerous honors, awards, and invited lectureships.

The School of Pharmacy offers students the ideal combination of a high-quality education, dedicated faculty, active research programs, and a supportive atmosphere enlivened by diversity and community service.
