Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences

How to make more effective and needle-free pulmonary vaccines? How can we better assess drug toxicity for humans? How can we fight antibiotic resistance?

How can we use Big data to improve preventive drug programmes? How can we optimize chronic drug use in ageing populations? How can we develop a business case for a new drug?

If you have a pharmaceutical bachelor or bachelor from chemistry or biomedical sciences with pharmaceutical elements, this two-year Master's degree programme will enhance your career in the exciting world of the drug development life cycle! We cover all drug-related elements, from basic target discovery to molecular drug design, from analysis of drugs and biomarkers to pharmacology, from toxicology and biopharmacy to clinical pharmacoepidemiology, post marketing surveillance, policy and business. 

An unique asset of the master of medical pharmaceutical sciences is that the lectures and research take place in an interdisciplinary Life Sciences environment from chemistry to statistics, from biology to medicine, from epidemiology to economics, management and business, all situated within walking distance. Learning research by actually doing it is a second unique asset, and students will have the opportunity to design two large research projects according to their needs and talent. Teaching professors from the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (see http://www.rug.nl/research/grip/) as well as from the medical sciences all work closely together, which is considered unique worldwide.

Lecturers will supervise you while you are independently performing experiments and go through the whole process of conducting a scientific drug-related study. The programme therefore is an excellent preparation for a career in industry, as a consultant, policy maker or a succeeding PhD programme in the biological, medical or pharmaceutical science. You will be in the lead to design your own research programme or may choose a clear track which will prepare for specialist positions.
