Year 3 Research Project

PHM389H1 Research Project

This elective course is designed to introduce students to the philosophy, methodology and performance of research in scientific fields offered by faculty members who hold graduate appointments in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences.  The research will involve the review of pertinent scientific literature and the generation of new information.  Depending upon the project and the supervisor, the research may be conducted in a number of settings, e.g., in a laboratory at the Faculty, in a hospital, community pharmacy, pharmaceutical company, or in an office.  Fields of study are wide ranging and include drug delivery, drug metabolism, medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacy administration and pharmacoeconomics, radiopharmacy, receptor biology, therapeutics, and toxicology.  The course includes working in the laboratory (or other relevant setting), reading, searching for literature, performance of research and writing of the research report.  Often times, the research may result in a joint publication with the supervisor. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 78 hours on the course, and are required to obtain prior written consent of the supervisor and course coordinator.
