The School of Pharmacy has a very active research programme with disciplines ranging from science to humanities with each having a strong contextual link to health sciences.
The School has three main research areas:
These reflect the core elements in the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study. These areas also align with the key areas of the Medicines New Zealand strategy: quality of medicines (pertaining to the pharmaceutical sciences), optimal use of medicines (pertaining to clinical pharmacy), and access to medicines (pertaining to social pharmacy).
Regular research interest seminars are held on Mondays at 1pm in Room 713, Adams Building, unless otherwise stated. Seminars are open to all University staff and postgraduate students.
All fourth-year students at the School of Pharmacy undertake a research project under the PHCY 470 Elective Project full-year paper. This gives students a better understanding of research and allows them to explore in-depth a topic that interests them.
Bachelor of Pharmacy with Honours (BPharm(Hons)) students undertake a research project under the PHCY 480 Honours Research Project paper.
