Northeastern’s renowned School of Pharmacy, part of the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, has a new home, residing in a 1914 neoclassical building that belies the transformation within. Amid the marble lobby and tiled arched ceilings at 140 The Fenway are three floors of faculty offices, conference rooms, and fully stocked, state-of-the-art labs, where undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty conduct groundbreaking interdisciplinary research.
In addition to the lab space, four tenure- and nontenure-track faculty members are starting this year, says John R. Reynolds, dean and professor of the School of Pharmacy, “bringing exciting new dimensions to the academic, practice, and research programs.”
“The labs signify our strength in drug discovery and delivery working across the continuum of use-inspired research, from bench to bedside,” says Reynolds, who points out that the school now ranks eighth among all 127 U.S. schools of pharmacy (and first among private schools of pharmacy) in NIH funding.
The opening of the new space comes during a landmark year for the School of Pharmacy. The school is celebrating its 50th anniversary at Northeastern; it merged with the university after 35 years as the New England College of Pharmacy. An anniversary gala is scheduled for November 3.
