Research Facilities (PSCI)

Graduate students in Pharmaceutical Sciences have their own suite of offices with individual desks and computers as well as printers and a lounge area. In addition, many graduate students have a research office desk. The College of Health Professions has graduate research laboratories housing a wide range of instruments and equipment including electrophysiological recording equipment, centrifuges, laminar flow hoods, tissue culture incubators, centrifuges, several high-performance liquid chromatographs, behavioral testing facilities, neurosurgical suite, animal housing facilities, cardiovascular recording equipment, radioligand and radioimmunoassay capabilities, chemical structure analysis equipment, and molecular modeling workstations. NDSU is a very cooperative environment providing the opportunity to interact with diverse researchers and various laboratories. The department is amassing expertise in neuropharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutics.

The College of Health Professions maintains a library with more than 6500 books and periodicals. The University Library system maintains holdings of over 1 million. The library system is moving toward a modern interlibrary loan system to provide access to journal articles from any regional libraries upon request.
