Nanopharmacy and nanomedicine is a unique interdisciplinary science that integrates the knowledge of natural sciences and engineering with Pharmacy and medicine to develop nanopharmaceuticals. Nanotechnology is a growing field with a projected growth of 13-19% between 2012 and 2022, and the creation of 5,400 new jobs. Salaries range from $50K to 80K with an MS degree.
The Master’s of Science in Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology (MSPN) is designed to train students in the skills they will need to understand the burgeoning technological advances in science at the nanoscale and how new nanomaterials and processes can be applied to drug delivery, diagnosis, treatment monitoring, tissue regeneration, personalized medicine and more. This program aims to bridge the gap between nanotechnology and medicine, providing students with advanced knowledge, skills and practical experience within the principles, technology, and applications within this exciting and innovative area. The program now offers two optional academic concentrations:
- Drug Discovery, Delivery, Development & Manufacturing (D4M)
- BIomedical Engineering
The program can be completed online or on-campus. Students can begin the program during the fall, spring or summer. International students may apply and are required to apply for an F-1 Visa to take courses on campus. Depending on the country of origin, this may take a few months. So the deadlines for international applicants may be earlier than the domestic applicant deadline. Check with the program for deadlines.
Beginning in fall 2018, the program will offer a limited number of merit and need based scholarships for international students.
Graduate Certificate programs offered include:
- Pharmacy Update and Practice Management
- Pre-Professional Pharmacy
- Teaching in Pharmacy
- Pharmacy Entrepreneurship, Leadership, and Management
