Center of Excellence in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

The Center of Excellence in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (CEPKPD) encompasses areas of departmental and university interests that include mathematical pharmacology, pharmacometrics, and quantitative and systems pharmacology (QSP). 

The University at Buffalo Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences has evolved to become the world’s foremost academic unit in several areas of computational analysis and modeling. Greater research synergies, international attention, and new opportunities for collaboration and funding are being sought by the CEPKPD.
