“Under the new leadership of Gloria Meredith, we are poised to recruit faculty, develop curriculum, construct a building, and move ahead with Binghamton University’s first new school since creation of the College of Community and Public Affairs nearly a decade ago,” said Harvey Stenger, Binghamton University’s president.

Meredith earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Southern Methodist University and a doctorate in neuroscience from Georgetown University School of Medicine. “This is a unique opportunity for this university to establish another quality professional program and to enhance research in the biomedical sciences and drug development and delivery,” she said.

Binghamton University is one of two schools in New York State that recently announced plans to start pharmacy schools. Stony Brook University on Long Island has started the approval process to open its School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. No date has been announced for that school’s opening.
