Reinventing pharmacy education for the next generation
Binghamton University’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) is a research-focused professional school offering the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. In the future, we will also offer a doctoral program leading to a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences.
The pharmacy school will educate students who understand the value of evidence-based,
patient-centered pharmaceutical care and innovative research. Our graduates will serve
their communities in socially responsible ways to improve health and well-being.
Our faculty and departments
More than 30 outstanding faculty and staff are already on board; we intend to grow that number to approximately 50 within two years.
Faculty are carrying out transdisciplinary, cutting-edge research in the following areas:
- Pharmaceutical sciences: drug discovery, drug and device development, pharmaceutics, pharmacology (including neuropharmacology) and pharmacogenomics
- Health outcomes: epidemiology, the economics of healthcare and health behavior
- Clinical sciences: therapeutic benefits and clinical assessment of drugs and devices
Our inaugural class joined us on the main Vestal campus in August 2017, and, along
with our second class of students, began classes in our brand-new, $60 million, state-of-the-art building in nearby Johnson City in fall 2018. When fully enrolled after four years, the school
will have approximately 380–400 students — 390 in the PharmD program and an additional
30–50 PhD students.
