Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences

Programma

  • 1e jaar

    You will be in the lead to design your own research programme or may choose a clear track which prepares you for specialist positions. We offer two unique tracks: 1) Pharmacoepidemiology - The science that focuses on issues of drug/vaccine use in patients and the beneficial and side effects in populations, applying clinical trials and observational Big Database studies. 2) Toxicology and Drug Disposition - Focuses on adverse drug reactions and pharmaco- and toxicokinetics of drugs.

Programma-opties

  • General research programme (afstudeerrichting)

    Tailor-made programme of master modules, electives and research projects in the wide scope of pharmaceutical research.

  • Toxicology and Drug Disposition (specialisatie)

    Focuses on adverse drug reactions and pharmaco- and toxicokinetics of drugs.

    It offers modules in toxicology, ranging from molecular toxicology, advanced pharmacokinetics, reproductive toxicology to clinical toxicology and post-marketing surveillance.

  • Pharmacoepidemiology (specialisatie)

    This specialisation combines pharmacovigilance, statistical database research, observational and trial intervention methodology as well as population-based drug use methodology.

    Specific attention is given to the role of drugs in ageing populations.

  • Pharmaceutical Design and Engineering (specialization) (specialisatie)

    This requires novel strategies for target-identification, drug development, and formulation..

    Are you interested in designing new drugs or biologicals, or in new ways to formulate them? The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, resistance to antibiotics and an ageing population require new views on drug development, as the current treatment arsenal provides insufficient disease-modifying capacity. The specialization Pharmaceutical Design and Engineering offers education in the most recent developments in these areas.

  • Science, Business and Policy (profiel)

    Interested in the business side of science? You can combine this Master's programme with the Science Business & Policy profile. The SBP profile includes a six-month internship as a scientific advisor.
