At BPS, we research biological mechanisms and chemical processes to develop solutions that will improve human health. This research will determine new therapeutic targets (pharmacology), explain how a drug is metabolized and excreted (pharmacokinetics), explain how individuals are different in their drug reactions (pharmacogenomics), and develop novel methods for delivering drugs (pharmaceutics). The program gives students the experience necessary to unravel real health mysteries of our day, using bioimaging, biophysics, cell biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, nanotechnology and biomedical engineering.
