Message from Magid Abou-Gharbia, Ph.D, FRSC Associate Dean for Research

Magid Abou-GharbiaWelcome to the Temple University, School of Pharmacy (TUSP) Research web site.   We hope that you find the information on our web site useful and interesting, whether you are prospective faculty, visiting scholar, graduate student, alumnus, or colleague in research and teaching. As a research driven organization, we are positioned to continue to provide leadership in our educational mission, while also pursuing innovative science.  In conjunction with both of these efforts, we will be training future researchers in pharmaceutical sciences, drug discovery and development, basic preclinical research, and translational medicine.  Graduate and undergraduate students interested in designing the next generation of novel therapeutics have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of mentored research programs that employ state of the art scientific instrumentation and techiniques.

In recent years, we have seen tremendous growth in our research enterprise.  A number of talented and accomplished researchers have joined our faculty and staff.  In addition we have established several centers of excellence for scientific study across a wide range of disciplines. In 2010, Temple University launched Drug Discovery Initiative which resulted in substantial expansion in number faculty and our research facilities embedded within the School of Pharmacy. 

Faculty and research staff efforts at the School of Pharmacy are focused on multidisciplinary approaches to complex scientific problems associated with a number of important disease states.  These efforts are support by multiple state of the art facilities including:

 
Funding for our research has been generously provided by several foundations, state funded grants, federally funded grants, contract research programs, and Temple University research awards.  In addition, members of our faculty have been recognized by outside scientific organizations as recipients of numerous honors, awards, and invited lectureships.  They routinely serve as members of NIH study section review teams and on the scientific advisory boards of scientific and professional organizations.  Graduate, professional, and undergraduate research efforts at the School of Pharmacy are highlighted in our annual Research Recognition Day event and Temple School of Pharmacy’s annual report.  
 
"We encourage you to browse our web site and learn more about our ongoing research programs at the School of Pharmacy and how we are working to bridge the gaps between drug discovery, preclinical basic research, and translation medicine."  Magid Abou-Gharbia, Associate dean for Research
