Touro College of Pharmacy Students in School’s Research Track Learn About Clinical Trials, Business Development and More

March 13, 2024

Touro College of Pharmacy (TCOP) has a strong history of preparing students for careers in research, where pharmacists are in ever-increasing demand. Led by Associate Dean of Research and Professor, Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, Dr. Zvi Loewy, Touro offers students the opportunity to enroll in a Research Track the fall semester of their second year.

Students are trained in experimental design, data analysis and scientific communication; study pharmacology through an advanced elective at New York Medical College’s School of Medicine; and collaborate with a pre-eminent engineering program, where they are exposed to product innovation and design.

With a research background, there are opportunities in basic research; clinical research (clinical trials); scientific and medical affairs; and business development. With didactic offerings that include biotechnology and pharmacogenomics, coupled with a unique practice experience elective series, TCOP students are strong contenders for fellowships and industrial positions. 

Meet four students who enrolled in the Research Track and are preparing for a variety of careers, including as residents, entrepreneurs and researchers.
