Since I am a pre-med major in pharmaceutical sciences, I am wondering whether doing research in the clinical pharmacy (for example, dosing and pharmacokinetics) will be harmful to my application to medical school. My PI is a PharmD. I am afraid that med school committees don't want to see someone doing research in pharmacy school.

Pharmaceutical research will not be harmful to a med school application, any more than would research in nonscience disciplines, like linguistics, economics, or psychology. So long as you gain an understanding of the scientific method in a scholarly pursuit of new, generalizable knowledge, you're good to go.
