If you mean you are interested in designing the chemicals that will eventually be FDA approved drugs, then you will need to pursue a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry. A Doctorate of Pharmacy will not prepare for your new drug discovery, however there will be opportunities for you to be involved with Phase 1 - 3 trials, which is the research involved in providing information about the efficacy and safety of new medicines.
