The Department of Pharmacy is devoted to teaching and research related to the development, manufacturing and use of pharmaceuticals. The Pharmacy discipline is broad with interfaces on science, technology and social studies. The Department thus benefits from being located at the BMC and close to the Ångström and Rudbeck laboratories, three multidisciplinary research and teaching centers at Uppsala University.
The Department centers its research on three areas, namely Drug Delivery, Rational Drug Usage and Pharmaceutical Materials Science. The research is developed by a series of research groups, some of international prominence. The research groups represent a unique cluster of academic competences in Sweden and Department of Pharmacy has thus a key role in the development of the pharmacy discipline in Sweden. For an overview of the profiles of the research groups, go to Research groups.
The Department offers a series of courses on basic and advanced levels in the academic disciplines Pharmaceutical Physical Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacy Practice and Policy, and Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics. The courses are intended for undergraduate and graduate students but also for professionals. The combination of basic and advanced courses makes it possible to aquire a scientific base as well as a scientific front-line competence in Pharmacy. For an overview of the courses, go to Education.
The Department offers PhD programmes in the academic disciplines Pharmaceutical Physical Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics Pharmacy Practice and Policy and Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics.
