Pharmaceutical Research is an interdisciplinary area of study dealing with the composition, effects, development, testing, production and release of drugs and medicinal products. In doing this pharmacy combines aspects of different natural sciences - mainly chemistry, biology and physics – with medicinal topics.
Students learn to deal with complex and current interdisciplinary problems of pharmaceutical drug discovery and development by using scientific methods. The course of study will provide the student with the necessary knowledge, capabilities, and methodology to engage in scientific work, to critically assess scientific findings, and to be in the position to act in a responsible way.
