The future of drug delivery.
Master’s students in UToledo’s industrial pharmacy program are prepared to be leaders in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The industrial pharmacy master’s program at The University of Toledo prepares students to design the drug-delivery methods of the future.
UToledo’s College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is one of the best in the U.S. We are accredited and nationally ranked.
We give our students a competitive edge in the job market. Graduates of our master’s program in industrial pharmacy learn to:
Research collaboration. UToledo’s pharmacy college cultivates research partnerships with academic institutions and private-sector industries through our Center for Drug Design and Development. The center focuses on converting new discoveries into practical therapies that can benefit the public.
Leading-edge medical campus. Study at one of the most technologically advanced health-science campuses in the U.S., home to UToledo’s medical and pharmacy schools. Our labs feature state-of-the-art instruments and equipment.
Financial aid. A limited number of teaching assistantships are available for master’s students. Each includes a tuition waiver and stipend.
The industrial pharmacy master’s program prepares students to assume entry-level pharmaceutical manufacturing positions. Industrial pharmacy scientists perform pre-formulation evaluation, dosage form design and stability testing.
Graduates of our master’s program also are accepted into Ph.D. programs at prestigious universities, including:
All applicants are required to submit GRE scores. Only Fall semester applicants are admitted, and there are no spring semester admissions into this program.
UToledo master’s students each complete a contemporary industrial pharmacy project. They apply their knowledge as entry-level scientists in the pharmaceutical industry across the world.
As part of their projects, students develop and characterize novel drug-delivery systems, including:
More than $1 million in grant money is awarded annually to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences for research and development. Industrial pharmacy faculty members have varied research interests, including:
One of our faculty members, Dr. Alan Riga, has more than 40 years of experience in industrial and forensic science. He has three patents and one pending for new transdermal patch technology for drug delivery. He also has developed new methods for formulating more soluble drugs.
