Opportunities & Innovation
Opportunities Today. Discoveries Tomorrow.
At Saint Joseph’s University, students, faculty and visiting scholars engage in pioneering research spanning a wide range of industries. Explore opportunities to conduct groundbreaking research while working side-by-side with stellar faculty and students.
Innovating at Soaring Levels
You will have countless opportunities to make new discoveries and conduct research at scale through our interprofessional education model, Haub Innovation Lab, global and local partnerships and so much more.
Our Labs and Facilities
Continuum of Care Simulation Suite
The Continuum of Care Simulation Suite (C2S2) is designed to simulate the full range and process of patient care, from community pharmacy to an intensive care unit. Patient care rooms with modular walls can be configured as one to five rooms. All rooms can be recorded for video and audio playback enhancing student learning. This suite has six high fidelity Laerdal manikins, one high fidelity pediatric Laerdal manikin, and cardiac and lung task trainers—providing life-life, hands-on simulations and symptoms to help develop individual decision-making and teamwork skills.
Industrial Pharmacy Laboratory
The Industrial Pharmacy Laboratory (IPHL) at Saint Joseph's University is a full-scale research facility serving the needs of the current drug pipeline, including small molecules and proteins. A catalyst of scientific progress, IPHL is a GLP-compliant pharmaceutical research facility offering complete drug delivery research services. The laboratory is fully equipped to support analysis, preformulation, and formulation research. IPHL scientists collaborate to overcome formulation and manufacturing challenges, streamline processes to increase cost-effectiveness, and develop product specific analytical methods for an array of different clients.
Model Inpatient Pharmacy
The model inpatient pharmacy that is community pharmacy with a waiting room and two patient interview rooms with students studying to become pharmacists.
The "West Center" (or WC3D2, for short) is focused on the application of computational methods to chemical and biological problems, as well as on the development of more powerful computational tools to improve the ability of these methods to produce real world answers.
The Chemistry Research Core Facilities are shared resources which offer a wide range of services to the research community. These include cutting-edge technologies, high-end instrumentation, technical support, and education. We are committed to enhancing and expanding collaborative capabilities between Saint Joseph's University and commercial entities.
Innovating a new treatment for mental health
Partnering with Compass Pathways, Jason Wallach, Ph.D, is researching the next psychedelic compounds that may have the breakthrough potential to innovate treatment of mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance use disorders, anxiety disorders, and more in his Drug Discovery Center lab.
