Advancing Drug Discovery
Fostering Groundbreaking Discoveries and Advancing Patient Care
Since 1885, The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy has explored new frontiers in drug discovery and development, pharmaceutical sciences and translational clinical science. Over the last four years, the college has seen the highest totals of NIH and total research funding ever recorded by the college — more than $45 million total. This funding contributed to 57 patents and 79 inventions in the past five years.
The college has made several significant investments into its research program recently, spending 21% of its fiscal year 2019 budget in this area. Research spending has gone to strategic initiatives such as renovating laboratories, moving and renovating its Shared Instrumentation Facility, awarding inaugural Dean’s Innovative Research Awards to support faculty pursuing submission or resubmission of extramural grant proposals, and more.
