College of Pharmacy Development
Major Campaign Objectives & Goals
The College's research program is ranked third in the nation among all colleges of pharmacy for NIH funded research. The research portfolio has grown over the years to include all the major components associated with developing and testing new medicines including:
A unique drug discovery program for new medicines from the sea
Pharmacologic evaluation of new drugs to treat epilepsy
Unique polymer-based drug delivery systems to more safely and effectively deliver anticancer agents to the site of action
Post-marketing evaluation for therapeutic outcomes, safety, and efficacy
At the same time, the College contributes to the state's economy by translating scientific findings into new medicines and medical technologies.
Our vision for sustaining this robust research program came full circle when we opened our new pharmacy research building in the spring of 2013. This new space brings students and faculty back together again allowing new opportunities for collaboration and cutting edge research in multidisciplinary teams to occur.
Additional campaign objectives and goals include:
Endowments for four presidential endowed chairs
Expanded support for scholarships, fellowships, and residencies
Endowments for post-graduate study
Lead gifts from Mr. L. S. Skaggs and The ALSAM Foundation were received for the pharmacy research building and the programming phase is completed
Three planned gifts for endowed chairs have been received
The Inaugural George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Presidential Endowed Chair of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry has been established
Twenty endowed scholarships and fellowships are now available
The College continues to identify gifts and pledges needed to complete the funding for this project as well as expanding support for scholarships, fellowships, and residencies.
