Drug Discovery and Development (DDD) is a programme focused on all aspects of identifying and introducing new medicines. Its mission is to deliver high-level specialists, equipped with a highly applied scientific basis for discovery and development of novel pharmacotherapeutics, combined with focused, real-life practical skills. This degree provides a solid grounding in pharmaceutical sciences, together with an opportunity to specialize in a particular drug discovery and development area.
The first semester is devoted to provide a basic understanding of drug discovery and development as well as key chemical, biological and pathophysiological aspects, relevant to drug research.
The second semester provides a wide and well-balanced training in pharmaceutical sciences, which serves as a basis for further, specialized skills development.
The third and fourth semesters are focused on one of the three leading areas:
- Medicinal Chemistry
- Experimental Pharmacology
- Model Based Drug Development
