Institute of Pharmaceutical Science


From molecules to medicines: using science to transform healthcare

The Institute of Pharmaceutical Science is organised into three research groups that work together towards the discovery of novel medicines and new formulations that can be evaluated in patients in the clinic, as well as providing a better understanding of how to optimise the use of existing medicines.

Laboratory to bedside

Our laboratory-based research is located in the Franklin Wilkins Building on the Waterloo Campus and focuses on innovation in drug discovery and drug delivery technologies. Our clinical researchers work closely with local teaching hospitals through King’s Health Partners and include training, education and research in optimising medicines use.
