Standards requiring education in informatics in pharmacy curricula were introduced in the last 10 years by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Mirroring difficulties faced by other health professions educators, implementation of these requirements remains fragmented and somewhat limited across colleges of pharmacy in the US. Clinical practice and workforce metrics underline a pronounced need for clinicians with varying competencies in health informatics. In response to these challenges, a multitiered health informatics curriculum was developed and implemented at a college of pharmacy in the Southeast...

Nature was and still is a prolific source of inspiration in pharmacy, cosmetics, and agro-food industries for the discovery of bioactive products. Informatics is now present in most human activities. Research in natural products is no exception. In silico tools may help in numerous cases when studying natural substances: in pharmacognosy, to store and structure the large and increasing number of data, and to facilitate or accelerate the analysis of natural products in regards to traditional uses of natural resources; in drug discovery, to rationally design libraries for screening natural compound mimetics and identification of biological activities for natural products...
