Reinventing pharmacy education for the next generation

Binghamton University’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) is a research-focused professional school offering the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree

The pharmacy school will educate students who understand the value of evidence-based, patient-centered pharmaceutical care and innovative research. Our graduates will serve their communities in socially responsible ways to improve health and well-being. 

Our faculty and departments

More than 30 outstanding faculty and staff are already on board; we intend to grow that number to approximately 50 within two years. 

These talented professionals work within our three departments: Health Outcomes and Administrative Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy Practice. 

Our research

Faculty are carrying out transdisciplinary, cutting-edge research in the following areas:

  • Pharmaceutical sciences: drug discovery, drug and device development, pharmaceutics, pharmacology (including neuropharmacology) and pharmacogenomics
  • Health outcomes: epidemiology, the economics of healthcare and health behavior
  • Clinical sciences: therapeutic benefits and clinical assessment of drugs and devices 

Our students

Our inaugural class joined us on the main Vestal campus in August 2017, and, along with our second class of students, began classes in our brand-new, $60 million, state-of-the-art building in nearby Johnson City in fall 2018. When fully enrolled after four years, the school will have approximately 390 PharmD students.
