Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmaceutical Sciences encompass all aspects of the delivery, development, administration, and utilization of therapeutic drugs. Our programs provide a stimulating and productive environment for graduate education and research for students with degrees in physical, biological, and social sciences. We offer research-intensive programs of study in a wide range of areas leading to Master's and Doctoral degrees.

Our graduate students may also participate in a wide variety of collaborative programs offered at the University of Toronto and/or internships which provide the opportunity to gain experience in a pharmaceutical or biotech company or in global health placements around the world.

There is also an opportunity for undergraduate students to experience research at the faculty in the Undergraduate Summer Research Program.
