Advancing Pharmaceutical Development at the UW

Applying collaborative expertise from across the UW campus community, the School of Pharmacy has launched a new center — the Lachman Institute for Pharmaceutical Development — to advance innovative drug treatments. The work of the institute is helping to accelerate the progress of novel therapies from laboratories into clinical settings, and without the generosity and leadership of Leon Lachman PhD’56, none of this would be possible.

“The UW–Madison School of Pharmacy has a strong focus on leading-edge pharmaceutical discovery and development with world-renowned faculty and a home on a campus that consistently ranks as one of the best in the world for research productivity,” says School of Pharmacy dean Steve Swanson. “With the establishment of the Lachman Institute, we can further augment our capabilities, leverage new collaborations, and be better positioned to stay on the front lines of innovation.”
