Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences


The school offers two courses, the Course of Pharmaceutical Sciences and The Course of Pharmacy.

The Course of Pharmaceutical Sciences comprises the two-year master’s and three-year doctor’s degree programs. This course is aimed at fostering international researchers and educators competent in the fields of drug discovery and development worldwide, fulfilling diversified needs in medical care.

The Course of Pharmacy is a four-year doctoral course aimed at producing pharmacists in teaching positions and clinical settings, equipped with practical research skills vital for the latest drug treatments, along with broad knowledge and high ethical standards of medicine.

Both courses employ unique curriculums and a multiple advisor system fostering systematic knowledge and abilities applicable to related research areas, aiming to realize interdisciplinarity and expertise at the same time.


Course of Pharmaceutical Sciences

The Course of Pharmaceutical Sciences is formed from fourteen departments (laboratories): Analytical Sciences, Physical Pharmacy, Theoretical Chemistry for Drug Discovery, Molecular Medicinal Chemistry, Bioorganic Synthetic Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Organic Chemistry, Pharmacognosy, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Bioorganic Chemistry, Medicinal Biotechnology, Molecular Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Health Chemistry, Medicinal Biochemistry, Optimal Medication.

Many laboratories in the course of Pharmaceutical Sciences carry out excellent fundamental research leading to drug discovery. The research presents the graduate students with the unique ability to carry out research chemically synthesizing and genetically producing new active molecules. The graduate students in the course are exposed to the science of drug discovery, drug action, and drug delivery. The course has educated highly motivated scientists occupying major positions in the pharmaceutical industry and academia.


Course of Pharmacy

The Course of Pharmacy involves eight laboratories: Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Information Science, Pharmacokinetics and Biopharmaceutics, Neurobiology and Therapeutics, Medical Pharmacology, Molecular Cell Biology and Medicine, Clinical Pharmacy, Clinical Physiology.

The objective of the Course of Pharmacy is to prepare students for independent, theorybased research leading to new knowledge and understanding of drug use, patient communication and behaviors, pharmacy practice, and the pharmaceutical profession. Study on the course enables clinical pharmacists to collaborate actively with doctors and nurses in the treatment of patients in medical care.
