    Hello,

    To be able to justify the list of universities, kindly suffice with the sectional break up of the GRE scores, the TOEFL scores, GPA etc. Also please note most of the US universities offer a Phd program in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is offered at the Masters level and is accepted for the entry to PhD in Pharmacy. But since you have specified the interested area of research, the following list of universities should meet your interest :

    University of Pittsburgh
    School of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences (PhD Program in Pharmacy - Drug Delivery and Targeting)

    University of Wisconsin - Madison
    School of Pharmacy (Ph D in Pharmaceutical Sciences - Drug Delivery)
    University of Iowa

    College of Pharmacy, Division of Pharmaceutics (Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics - Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering )

    Northeastern University
    Bouve College of Health Sciences, School of Pharmacy (Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Systems )

    Also, while considering a PhD program in comparison to a Masters program, please note it is a tedious task getting across the University of your Choice to pursue a PhD. The next hurdle is having a professor recommending your profile since the area of your interest should align with the professor’s field of research. It is strongly recommended that you update the professors in the related department of the universities about your profile. If your profile interests them, they can offer you the best guidance. The candidates for a PhD are considered only if the department is willing to fund them. Precisely these factors can be closely discussed with the faculty members, if they show the necessary interest in your profile.

    Do get back to us in case of further queries.

    Take care!

    Hello, I'd appreciate your advice regarding a similar subject.
    I am very interested in PhD programs in Pharmaceutical sciences with special interest in Molecular, Neuro-, & Cancer Pharmacology. My documents are ready (Transcripts, GRE, TOEFL), but I feel lost when it comes to which university to approach, the list is so long & the time till deadline is short (31/12 for most). I am open to other fields of Pharmaceutical sciences; what matters is to be enrolled for 2011 fall.

    Hello Sreeram,

    PhD is one of the degrees that is competitive not just in terms of the profile but to meet up with the expectations in the research areas as well. Generally, above average academic grades, competitive scores on GRE and TOEFL are considered while considering a university. While considering a PhD from the universities in US, practically the eligibility criteria and the admission requirements are as that defined for a Masters program in terms of the test takes.

    The difference is visible with the required cut off, reference letters, additional materials like the project details, paper publications etc. that talk of your interest towards the research in the intended field.

    The best I can suggest at this point of time is to start off by going through the official program website of the university and look for the faculty and research section. This section displays the professors involved with research and the specialization considered.

    As a candidate you should be able to analyze whether the research work being conducted in the department interests you or not. Update the professors in the related department of the universities about your profile. If your profile interests them, they can offer you the best guidance. Try and communicate with the faculty members in universities that interest you and where your profile is acceptable

    Now with regard to he list of universities, please note the clinical research studies are offered in varying streams like nursing, drug related options, health population etc. Kindly specify the stream of your interest or more elaboration your profile in terms of academics and profession so that we can guide your better. Also, please remember very few universities offer such programs and are hence highly competitive.

    Take care!

    Hello,

    In reference to your query, your are eligible to pursue doctoral program abroad. But you can take your choice cosmology ahead in case you have completed some projects earlier in this area. This will help you get admissions. Because University professors would prefer students who have research experience in the same area.

    Thus you can take up some external projects in cosmology to improve your admission chances for the same.

    Hope this information helps!

    Hello,

    From all that I have searched, there are some good options in the specified field of interested though I feel US will broaden your options in terms of the universities you can consider.

    Also, you may not come across program titles specifically in the research areas and will have to settle for broader terms like Pharmaceutical Sciences / Pharmaceutics etc. For your reference and better understanding on the pattern of PhD, I have listed out few options :

    • University of Alberta, Canada (Drug Metabolism)
    • University of Montreal, Canada (Pharmaceutical Analysis)
    • West Virginia University, USA (Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics)
    • Washington State University, USA (Drug Metabolism)
    • University of Pittsburgh, USA (Pharmaceutical Analysis)

    You must also remember that though the formalities to apply for a PhD is similar to that for a Masters degree in both the locations, there are certain aspects with regard to the additional documents that seek special attention while considering PhD programs. Also, the approach during the selection of the universities vary and is not restricted to the academic profile, scores on the test takes, project work etc.

    A touch of professional guidance should make most of your profile. I would hence recommend you consider our Counseling Services where we cater to the selection of the universities as per your interest and profile and guide you through the other formalities of the application procedure as well. You can look for visa guidance as well as a part of our services.

    If interested, I would hence recommend you forward your resume` at j.dipika.j@gmail.com along with the above stated details so that one of our counselors can go through the same and get back with appropriate suggestions.

    Also, since it seems like you still have to take the test takes, the following links should help you with detailed information on the same :

    Graduate Record Examination-GRE
    Test of English as a Foreign Language-TOEFL
    International English Language Testing Systems-IELTS

    I hope this helps!

    Take care!

    Hello,

    The only appropriate option I came across in India happens to be National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research! Generally India offers a PhD in Pharmacy with varying tracks for research. Otherwise there are a number of options if you consider international locations.

    Also, the options specifically for a PhD in Pharmaceutical Technology are just handful. Sine you are open for the relevant tracks as well, you may very well consider a PhD in streams like Drug Delivery, Pharmacology, Medicinal Chemistry etc. or broader terms like Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Sciences as well.

    Think on the above stated and if considering a PhD from abroad, I would recommend you look for USA as one of the prioritized options for the fact that you will come across many and a varsity of options in the field. Perhaps going through some of the options might help ;

    • University of Iowa
    • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    • University of Rhode Island
    St. John's University

    Think on the above stated and in case you are looking for education abroad, I would recommend you consider our counseling services where we have a team of professional experts to guide you through the entire application proceeding starting from the selection of the universities to the visa proceedings. In order to initiate the process you may either forward your resume` at j.dipika.j@gmail.com or leave your details in the link below :

    Counseling Services

    Also, if interested in St. John's University, you may have a word with our senior counselor Ketaki M Rohatgi at Ph. No. 1800-420-3039 or Email at counselors@savvica.com and click here to initiate the application procedure.

    I hope this helps!

    Take care!
