Master’s Programme in Pharmaceutical Research, Development and Safety
How do we create the effective, safe and sustainable drug treatments of the future?
The Master’s Programme in Pharmaceutical Research, Development and Safety offers the opportunity to obtain a comprehensive overview of the life cycle of drugs and their use. The study program combines compulsory and optional courses with study tracks that focus on three possible subdisciplines: 1) drug discovery and pharmacology, 2) drug development and 3) medication safety and effectiveness. The programme combines research-oriented studies and high-quality pedagogical methods and integrates the perspective of Green and Sustainable Pharmacy into the curriculum, essential for managing the global sustainability challenge.
Upon graduating, you earn a degree in pharmaceutical sciences and gain expertise relevant to a wide range of careers in R&D and healthcare regulatory and management tasks in academia, pharmaceutical industry or the public sector (e.g. regulatory agencies). The programme is hosted by the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Helsinki, an internationally recognised drug research institute.
