Reinventing pharmacy education for the next generation

Binghamton University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) is a research-focused professional school offering the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree as well as the Master of Science and PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences

The pharmacy school educates students who understand the value of evidence-based, patient-centered pharmaceutical care and innovative research, and scientists who will extend the knowledge base of pharmaceutical sciences in the areas of drug target discovery, drug testing and drug delivery.

Our graduates will serve their communities in socially responsible ways to improve health and well-being. 

Our faculty and departments

We currently have more than 50 outstanding faculty and staff on board, with more to come.

These talented professionals work within our two departments: Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy Practice. 

Our research

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
  • 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, along with our second class of students, began classes in our $60 million, ultramodern building in nearby Johnson City in fall 2018. The school has approximately 360 PharmD students and 15 MS/PhD students.
