Pharmaceutical Sciences & Centre for Drug Research and Development

The continuing need for pharmacists in British Columbia and the sustained growth in the fields of pharmaceutical sciences and drug research have presented UBC with an important opportunity to solidify its role as a leader in these fields and upgrade existing obsolete facilities. The new Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences & Centre for Drug Research building allows the Faculty to expand the current entry class of 152 places by 72 for a total of 224 entry positions. The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences/CDRD Building is located at the corner of Wesbrook and Agronomy, adjacent to the Thunderbird Parkade and immediately across the street from the Life Sciences Centre.
