Welcome

The Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences (BMED) serves as the "basic science" unit of the Skaggs School of Pharmacy.  With research strengths in Molecular Pharmacology, Neuroscience, Toxicology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Medicinal Chemistry, its faculty of about 40 oversees much of the P1- and P2-year curriculum for the professional Pharm.D. program, as well as four graduate Ph.D. programs.  A strong commitment to collaborative, multidisciplinary biomedical research has led to the development of two NIH Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence and an NIH/NINDS P30 Core Laboratory that have helped make BMED one of the leading research units on campus.
