Pharmacists in the United States are often called “medication experts” and function as information resources for fully integrated inter-professional healthcare teams. It’s why pharmacy research drives the future of drug development and delivery, and provides new perspectives on how to treat people in novel ways, treat diseases with different drug combinations and to use the most advanced technologies and systems to better outcomes.
Bioscience research and basic pharmaceutical science research (the development and testing of new dosage forms or drug delivery modalities) are part of pharmacy research, as well; clinical research with a focus on the safety, efficacy, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of medications; pharmacy practice as it relates to the evaluation of new and existing services; and social administrative research that encompasses patient adherence, patient safety, pharmacoeconomics, patient-provider communication and epidemiology.
