Location: Königin-Luise-Str. 2+4

Topics:

The working group leaders at the Institute of Pharmacy give an overview over their research areas and current topics of interest. These topisc span the areas of Pharmaceutical Biology, Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Pharmaceutical Technology. This lecture series will provide an overview over current research activities the Institute of Pharmacy.

Seminar:

S Current Topics of Pharmaceutical Research (Working group leaders (PIs))
Time: every winter semester – specific dates after consultation of the respective PIs
Ort: Königin-Luise-Str. 2+4

Topics & Organisation:

The seminar enables the students to actively participate in the group seminars of the different working groups at the Institute of Pharmacy. In these seminars, current research results will be presented and discussed by the members of the respective working groups. The masterstudents will have the possibility to gain valuable insights into the procedures of current scientific research. For this, 14 seminars have to be attended and can be distributed over different working group seminars. The dates for the working group seminars can be found under the module “Pharmaceutical Research Project”. Prior to participation in the seminars, please contact the respective PI to arrange your attendance.

Pharmaceutical Research Project

The Pharmaceutical Research Project includes the active participation of the students in current research projects and the presentation and discussion of results. The research projects can be conducted at the different working groups at the institute of Pharmacy and span a duration of ca. 8 weeks full time. In addition to practical work in the laboratories, the research project includes the mandatory participation in the seminar of the respective working group.
