The WVU School of Pharmacy has made significant advances in understanding the cause of diseases and in developing new therapeutic approaches to cancer, stroke, and depression—chronic health issues that place a heavy economic burden on the state and the nation.
To continue to excel in drug discovery and research, the School must renovate its existing research lab space and ensure faculty and students have state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the latest research-related equipment and technology.
The School is also a leader in understanding the various causes of health disparities in West Virginia, a state consistently ranked among the top three in the U.S. on many morbidity and mortality rankings. Therefore, we must also continuously upgrade our data warehousing and analytical capabilities to evaluate the health status of West Virginians.
