The UW School of Pharmacy is ranked No. 10 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The UW was ranked No. 3 in the world in 2012 in clinical medicine and pharmacy by the Center for World-Class Universities.
The School of Pharmacy is part of a world-renowned and highly collaborative health sciences program that also includes the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and Social Work.
In 2012, the newly renovated Bracken Pharmacy Learning Center opened. This PharmD student learning lab now features many new additions to improve student learning and provide state-of-the-art technologies.
In 2013, Professor of Pharmaceutics Jashvant Unadkat secured a $4.7 million National Institute on Drug Abuse grant to study drug disposition during pregnancy, in an effort to improve the health of pregnant women and their babies. Other faculty members on the project are Gail Anderson, Rodney Ho, Nina Isoherranen, Ed Kelly, Qingcheng Mao and Joanne Wang.
Professor of Pharmacy Dave Veenstra recently received a $1.9 million grant from the NIH Common Fund to study the economics of personalized medicine in order to help increase knowledge about which medicines have the greatest benefit to individual patients.
