School of Pharmacy Vision

School of Pharmacy Vision

My vision for the School of Pharmacy at Newcastle University is to create a world-class School, providing outstanding research and education, which has an impact regionally, nationally and internationally to develop professionals who can contribute to the issues society faces in respect of the safe and effective use and development of medicines.

Professor Andy Husband, head of the school.

The design, delivery and use of modern medicines has never been more complex and challenging than it is now. We are creating more complex treatments to target diseases and with that comes many challenges and also huge costs, both financial and human. The population is ageing and the costs of treating disease within a diverse population are substantial.
