The Gatton College of Pharmacy encourages students to become involved in research. During the second and third didactic years, students may take elective courses in “Pharmaceutical Science Research” and/or “Pharmacy Practice Research/Scholarship” to gain hands on experience while also earning academic credit.

Faculty members at the college have a variety of research backgrounds and experience, and research may include bench top work, clinical studies, and the scholarship of teaching. Students who complete research projects may have the opportunity to present research posters at regional or national meetings or publish the study findings in a national journal.
