Dean Pollack Welcome

Gary M. Pollack, PhD.


As a proud 1984 University at Buffalo pharmaceutics alumnus, I am thrilled to be back home as the 12th dean of the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SPPS). I am excited to help guide the school to ensure even greater success for our exceptional student leaders, innovative educational programs and outstanding research and scientific discovery.

As we embark on the next stage of our journey, we will continue to maximize the impact of our collective work, relying on the strength of our proud past to position us for even greater future success on the national and global stage.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve in my role as dean. I look forward to working with our faculty, staff, students, alumni, partners and friends to ensure our school remains a welcoming place, where both personal and professional development are nurtured, laying a strong foundation for future success.
