We are excited to announce the launch of our new website and we hope you will take the time to browse through and learn how we are moving science and health here at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy.

When this project began, we engaged internal and external stakeholders to help us identify and define priority areas for improvement. We also led usability testing with key audiences that informed the new navigation and information architecture. The result is a modern and engaging website that highlights our leading-edge research and education with a fresh look and feel.

Throughout our new website, you will notice a distinctive pattern has been incorporated into the design. These circles and ellipses reflect and describe our unique environment: pharmaceutical sciences represented by circles or petrie dishes, and pharmacy practice by the ellipses or pills under one roof. Sometimes these disciplines overlap, sometimes they don’t. This visual representation of our community is a reminder of who we are as a Faculty and the endless possibilities we generate. I am proud to be part of an environment where our students, staff and faculty are recognized worldwide for remarkable scholarship, ingenuity, creativity and impact.

Our researchers are advancing knowledge every day in countless way across our research areas of molecular basis of drug targets and diseases, drug development and disease diagnostics, drug safety, health services research and clinical pharmacy research.

As we move forward into a new decade, I look forward to the continued growth and evolution of many key initiatives already underway.  We are renewing our PharmD curriculum to ensure the pharmacists we train will be well prepared to meet the needs of patients and society in the future.  We are also exploring the development of an onsite pharmacy that will focus on testing innovations, practice research and experiential education to develop pharmacy professionals, while accelerating the speed of new discoveries applied to clinical practice. 

We have an exceptionally talented and engaged community, both inside and outside of the walls of the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy. Let us continue to work together to achieve the vision of our Academic Plan and to collectively build our future.

Best Regards,
