Our mission is to educate and train the next generation of leaders and innovators in pharmaceutical sciences research; to provide a strong education in foundational sciences for students in the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program; to discover and develop tools and strategies for prevention, detection, and cure of human disease; and to use our collective expertise to engage and educate the public to promote health and better understanding of pharmaceutical agents.

  Our research programs encompass four core areas and we invite you to read about our areas of expertise and current accomplishments:

 Recent research highlights include:

 We are located on two campuses, in the Collaborative Life Sciences Building on the Waterfront in Portland at Oregon Health & Sciences University and in buildings across the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis from Weniger Hall, to the Linus Pauling Science Center, to our historical home in the Pharmacy building. This geographic diversity allows us to collaborate broadly with scientists and clinicians at both OSU, Oregon's land grant university, and OHSU, the state’s major medical research center, to promote translation of research to improve health for all.
