Modelling is increasingly used in all aspects of drug discovery, development, and usage. The Master Programme in Pharmaceutical Modelling will provide you with knowledge to design new drug molecules with optimal affinity for pharmacological targets, to understand and control how drugs are absorbed, distributed and eliminated from the human body, to design and interpret clinical drug trials, and to optimally use drugs in the population.

About

The Master Programme in Pharmaceutical Modelling will provide you with theoretical and practical knowledge of the use of advanced modelling techniques in the various disciplines of drug discovery, development and usage. A special focus is placed on the practical application of modelling techniques, and on the communication of modelling results outside and within the own discipline. The programme provides competences and skills needed for a career in modelling in the pharmaceutical industry, biotech companies, in government agencies or for further PhD studies.

Theory and practice are interwoven into the courses, and instruction takes place in the form of lectures, computer exercises, seminars and projects. The lecturers are active researchers in their respective field, and teaching subjects will cover research topics of current importance.

Career

Uppsala University has an excellent international reputation, and a master degree in Pharmaceutical Modelling from Uppsala University will provide you with an internationally recognized education that opens doors to both academic research and a career in industry, in Sweden and internationally.

Rapid developments in the fields of drug discovery, development and usage, with increasing amounts of data, and increasing costs of drug development and use, is leading to the implementation of diverse modelling approaches to analyze complex datasets, optimize workflows, and understand the complex and dynamic effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Competence within the various disciplines of pharmaceutical modelling is therefore expected to be increasingly valuable in industrial, governmental and academic settings alike.

Degree

A Master of Pharmaceutical Science with Drug Discovery and Development as the main field of study is obtained after you have completed course requirements of 120 credits including an independent degree project of at least 30 higher education credits.

Programme Structure

The programme is taught full-time over four semesters.

The first semester gives an overview of the drug discovery and development fields, and provides the tools needed for subsequent courses and future professional life.

The second and third semester provides in-depth knowledge of various tools and modelling techniques used in the pharmaceutical sciences. At the end of the third semester, you will have the opportunity to specialise in the direction you desire by choosing courses.

The fourth semester is given in the form of a degree project of 30 credits, that can be carried out at one of the research departments at the University, or externally at governmental agencies or within pharmaceutical or biotech industry.
