Dean's Welcome

O'Donnell .

For over 130 years, the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences has been a leader in the education of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. We are proud to be the #1 ranked school of pharmacy in New York State and #14 in the country.

Our interdisciplinary environment allows students to benefit from our innovative research, teaching and practice, providing a rich foundation for their growth and mastery of medication therapy management as well as fundamental research paradigms in drug development. These foundational principles provide our students with unique strengths which they can apply to improving patient care and health outcomes.  

Our outstanding faculty were responsible for some of the seminal principles in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drug delivery. These theoretical concepts are the building blocks for many of today’s current drug therapies and support innovative future research.

We invite prospective students to discover our exciting academic programs, and view our state-of-the-art facilities. We encourage our alumni to stay connected to former classmates, find out about current news and events, and remain involved with the school

Our rich and dynamic history positions us well to provide the teaching, research and real world preparation students need to succeed. I invite you to find out more and join us in these very worthwhile pursuits.
