The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences' building (completed in 2012) is named in honor of alumnus John N. Kapoor, '72, and his late wife, Editha.
The 160,000-square foot facility includes many green-design features, such as maximizing natural daylight (75% of all space in the building receives natural light), creation of social spaces and the reuse of the Acheson Hall building footprint. The building offers a state-of-the-art Pharmaceutical Care and Teaching Center and has improved linkages between all of UB's health science schools.
Two large lecture halls, as well as the Pine Pharmacy Pharmaceutical Care Learning Center Classroom and Patient Assessment/Counseling Rooms, provide students with assessment opportunities on mock patients. These multimedia spaces have the ability to video capture student-to-patient interactions, allowing students to review and improve upon their skills. The Model Pharmacy is a multi-use space for community- and hospital-based pharmaceutical exercises.
Our school is home to over 20 research facilities. In addition to Kapoor Hall, the campus boasts a robust network of clinical and research affiliations with a variety of local, regional, national and international sites, including Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the Nobel Prize-winning Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, the ACTG (AIDS Clinical Trial Group), and the University of Zimbabwe, Harare.
