About Our Organization

The College of Pharmacy is located on the WSU Health Sciences campus in Spokane, WA, the second largest city in the state. The College is expanding its research and graduate education capacity across its academic units, including Experimental and Systems Pharmacology, Pharmacotherapy, and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Areas of research emphasis in the College include identification of novel drug targets, pharmacology, drug-nutrient interactions, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, drug delivery and drug discovery.

The College of Pharmacy shares the WSU Health Sciences campus with the Colleges of Nursing and Medical Sciences (an emerging College of Medicine). The faculty are actively collaborating with surrounding hospitals and the WSU campus in Pullman. Hence, the College of Pharmacy is uniquely positioned for multidisciplinary collaborations and translational research projects.
