School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences


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. 

These talented professionals will work within our three departments: Health Outcomes and Administrative Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy Practice. 

Our research

Faculty are being hired to carry 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 students

Our inaugural class joined us on the main Vestal campus in August 2017, and 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 — 350 in the PharmD program and an additional 30–50 PhD students.
