Office of the Associate Dean for Research

Our mission is to initiate and advance outstanding research programs within the College of Pharmacy; to build research collaborations across the University of Minnesota, nationally and internationally; and to expand extramural funding at the college.

The Office of the Associate Dean for Research at the University of Minnesota’s College of Pharmacy promotes the growth and success of research performed by faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students.

Our goals are to:

  • Network with faculty, staff, and students within the college and the university to build individual and team research portfolios
  • Mentor faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students to achieve their research objectives - proactively identify and respond to funding opportunities
  • Monitor research funding trends by collecting, analyzing, and storing funding data and reports

Through these efforts, we will sustain and advance the role of the College of Pharmacy as a leader in the improvement of the health of individuals in our communities and across the nation.
