PhD Programs
The College, in conjunction with the UIC Graduate College, offers PhD degrees in Biopharmaceutical Sciences, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacognosy
and Pharmacy.
Master of Science (MS) degrees are also offered in these disciplines. Biopharmaceutical Sciences does not admit students to the MS.
Biopharmaceutical Sciences
Medicinal Chemistry
Director of Graduate Studies:
Richard Gemeinhart, PhD

Director of Graduate Studies:
John Fitzloff, PhD
[email protected]
Research in the biopharmaceutical sciences
involves pharmaceutics (drug delivery),
pharmacodynamics (drug action),
pharmacokinetics (absorption and distribution
properties) and pharmacogenomics. Our active
forensic science and toxicology groups are also
included in this field of study.
Research in medicinal chemistry involves
design, synthesis, structure elucidation, and
analysis of synthetic compounds possessing
biological (potential drug) activity.
Specific research programs include:
lipid and polymer-based drug delivery
targeted drug delivery
membrane transport and absorption
behavioral pharmacology
cardiovascular pharmacology
environmental toxicology; and,
cancer chemotherapy
Specific research programs include:
synthetic chemistry directed toward
neurodegenerative and oncologic diseases
computational approaches to drug design
chemical toxicology and biological
synthetic development of enzyme inhibitors
and low molecular weight catalysts
natural product structure elucidation
Pharmacy (Pharmacy Administration)
Director of Graduate Studies:
Stephanie Crawford, PhD, MHA

Director of Graduate Studies:
Steve Swanson, PhD
[email protected]
Pharmacy administration is a dynamic field that
applies approaches from management science,
economics, and the social sciences to issues in
health care that relate to pharmacy, pharmacists,
and pharmaceuticals.
Research in pharmacognosy involves the
isolation, structure elucidation and bioassay of
plant and other natural product compounds
having potential applications as treatments or
Specific research programs include:
patient outcomes
health care and pharmaceutical policy
comparative health care systems
consumer medication use safety
pharmacoeconomics and management
rational drug use and distribution
socioeconomic and cultural issues related to
drug use
Specific research programs include:
chemotherapeutic and chemopreventive
properties of natural products
structure elucidation of bioactive natural
products and their mechanism of action
development of methods for the analysis of
botanical dietary supplements
use of traditional medicines by indigenous
** Center for Pharmaceutical
Coordinator of Graduate Studies:
Alexander Mankin, PhD

This Center is a specialized research entity
within the Pharmacognosy program. Research
interests include computer-assisted rational
drug design, interactions of RNA with new
antibiotics, protein crystallography, protein
folding, and bacterial genomics. Graduate
students can select research advisors from the
Specific research programs include:
haperone protein-mediated protein
structure-based design of therapeutic
mechanisms of antibiotic action and
structural biology
anthrax and other bioterrorism agents

Master of Science Degree Programs
Master of Science (MS) degrees are offered in Biopharmaceutical Sciences, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacognosy and Pharmacy.
You can apply directly to the M.S. in Pharmacy (Administration). However, you should apply to the PhD program in the other
disciplines. The College also offers a stand alone M.S. degree in Forensic Science.
Master of Science in Forensic Science Program
Director of Graduate Studies
Prof. R.E. Gaensslen, PhD
[email protected]
The rigorous curriculum for this stand-alone, professional master’s degree program provides broad knowledge of basic forensic
science laboratory disciplines: biology/biochemistry, chemistry and trace (materials) evidence analysis; drug identification and
toxicology; and pattern evidence (documents, fingerprints, firearms and tool marks).
Joint Degree Programs
PharmD-PhD Program
In response to industry and academic demands for pharmacists with PhD training, the College offers a joint Doctor of Pharmacy
(PharmD) – PhD degree program. Students enrolled in this program can pursue the PharmD - the standard degree for pharmacists.simultaneously with any of our PhD degree offerings.
The joint program is highly competitive and designed for select students who have interests in both the clinical aspects of pharmacy
and research in the pharmaceutical sciences. With judicious selection and timing of courses, joint program participants can earn both
degrees in less overall time than would be required to complete the degrees separately.
PharmD – MBA Program
The College partners with the College of Business Administration to offer a joint PharmD/MBA Program. Pharmacy students with high
academic standing and an interest in acquiring the business skills necessary to manage health care facilities and other enterprises
are eligible to apply.
PharmD – MSHI Program
This joint degree program integrates Pharmacy Science and clinical practice with health informatics, the goal being identification,
collection, processing and management of information to support pharmacy practice, administration, education and research. It
promotes the expansion of pharmacy knowledge and leadership and is an important new dimension of pharmacy practice. Students in
this joint program learn to identify the social issues that inhibit the effective use of information technology in health care and to apply
creative solutions that address these issues.
