  • CHEM 6330 - Chemical Kinetics and Dynamics - 3 hrs - applications of the laws and procedures of thermodynamics and kinetics to chemical problems. Stabilities of species, direction and rates of reaction, rate theories, chemical statistics, reaction mechanisms.
  • Biology 155:506 - Biostatistics - 5 hrs - principles and practices of sampling and measurement in biology; testing of hypotheses.
  • PHPR - Dosage Form Design - 4 hrs - the utilization of pharmaceutical principles for the design and manufacture of modern dosage forms such as tablets, aerosols, emulsions, suspensions and solutions. Utilization of biopharmaceutical principles for the production of efficacious products is stressed.
  • PHPR - Product Development - 3 hrs - a study of various stages of development of pharmaceutical products. It includes essential and subsidiary preformulation tests, methods of stabilization, and pilot scale production of dosage forms. The laboratory provides the student with practical experience and familiarizes him with some basic procedures involved in the formulation of new products and improvement of old dosage forms.
  • Pharmacology 648:615 - Pharmacokinetics - 3 hrs - a study of mathematical models simulating various body compartments and their application in the interpretation in vivo data. The course employs the powerful tools of kinetics to gain a clearer understanding of absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination processes involved in drug utilization and disposition by the body.
  • PHPR - Parenteral Manufacturing - 4 hrs - a treatment of the design, manufacture and stability of sterile products with emphasis on production and quality control procedures. Familiarization with literature and contemporary problems is stressed.
  • PHPR - Drug Disposition - 3 hrs - the rational ` selection of pharmacological agents in disease states, drug-drug interaction and toxicological problems associated with drug use and environmental chemicals within the framework of principles of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion.
  • PHPR - Selected Topics in Bulk Compounding Technology - 3 hrs - further discussion, evaluation, experimentation and production of selected dosage forms covered in parenteral products, etc. Emphasis is placed on a detailed treatment of a few dosage forms including supportive literature obtained by the student.
  • PHPR - Seminar in Pharmaceutical Sciences - 1 hr.
  • PHPR - Equilibrium Phenomenon - a theoretical and practical examination of the principles of chemical equilibrium and techniques of calculation. Physical and chemical concepts focus on pharmaceutical systems as well as several areas of chemistry.
  • PHPR - Pharmaceutical Rate Processes - a theoretical and practical application of kinetic principles applied to pharmaceutic and cosmetic systems. A mathematical treatment and development of the equations which support each reaction mechanism.
  • Educational Research and Measurement 334:501 - Educational Statistics - Introduction to major concepts of statistical description; central tendency; dispension; relative position and relationship, and elementary inferential methods as they relate to educational research and measurement. (Note: This course is an option for those students who enter either in Winter or Spring Quarters and will complete all degree requirements prior to their availability of Biostatistics (155:505) )
  • PHPR -Parenteral Manufacturing - The theory and practice of developing the formulation, procedures and processes for preparing a parenteral and ophthalmic dosage form.
