To accomplish this mission, we provide an administrative infrastructure to support the college’s research endeavors and to promote a collaborative and interdisciplinary research and training environment.  This support is designed to ensure the scholarly success of our faculty and to provide for exemplary training of pre- and postdoctoral students in the pharmaceutical sciences.
