The Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald
generally known as the University of Greifswald, is located in Greifswald, Germany. Founded in 1456, it is one of the oldest universities in both Germany and Europe. There are currently about 11,500 students studying at five faculties, 65 % of whom are from outside the state. In 2006, the university celebrated its 550th anniversary with a large variety of events. The central ceremony, involving the re-opening of the university’s renovated administrative building by the President of Germany, Horst Köhler, and Queen Silvia of Sweden took place on October 17, 2006.
Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Copenhagen
Founded in 1892 as the Royal Danish School of Pharmacy, The Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences merged with the University of Copenhagen on 1 January 2007. Today called theFaculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences it is still the only academic institution in Denmark that offers a MSc programme in pharmacy.
To continue the upward curve for the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, we ensure high professional standards in research and teaching while demonstrating our dynamism and willingness to change.
To ensure that our research is competitive internationally, the Faculty has identified six strategic central research areas: Drug-oriented analytical chemistry, Neuro-pharmacology, Pharmaceutical technology, Drug delivery, Medicinal chemistry – structure-based drug research and Optimal drug therapy.
Educations targeted at the future
In keeping with the Bologna Declaration, in 2003 the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences introduced a ‘2+3’ scheme for the five-year full-time programme in pharmacy – in other words a three-year bachelor’s programme and a two-year MSc programme.
The Faculty also offers a two-year full-time graduate programme for students with non-pharmaceutical bachelor’s degrees as well as three part-time master’s programmes: Master of Drug Management, Master of Industrial Drug Development and Master of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs.
High priority for research training
Research programmes – PhD studies – have been a pivotal area of interest for many years, acquiring an extra dimension in 2002 with the establishment of the Drug Research Academy (DRA), a research programme with an industrial focus.
The Drug Research Academy is co-financed by the pharmaceutical industry, Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The Academy trains researchers in an interdisciplinary setting with a clear industrial focus, while helping to reinforce the strong research environment at the Faculty.
