The department has a strong research portfolio in the area of pharmacy practice particularly in quality care standards including development of evidence-based protocols and pharmacist interventions.
Research projects in pharmacy practice are developed to have an impact on the local needs in the area of professional service provision. These include the preparation of a Formulary for Mount Carmel Hospital, a Formulary for Karin Grech Rehabilitation Hospital, a Quality System for Karin Grech Rehabilitation Hospital, the Maltese Medicines Handbook, the Maltese Directory of Pharmacists and an English-Maltese Dictionary of Medical and Pharmaceutical Terms.
Research programmes are also run in collaboration with other departments in the faculty. Two significant ongoing research projects which are being run jointly with the Department of Surgery are the determination of antibacterial drugs in peripheral tissues in patients with peripheral artery disease and the quantification of pancreatic amylase in gastric juice.
In the area of pharmaceutical chemistry, the department is establishing an area of research in computational chemistry.
