The youngest department of the Faculty of Pharmacy was founded in 1979. Its main responsibility was the enforcement of the biological and medical education in the teaching of pharmacy students. In addition to the educational activity we carry out significant pharmacological research. In the undergraduate program our main subject is the Pharmacology and Toxicology. In addition we teach two other mandatory subjects: the Basic Medical Pathophysiology and the Drug Therapy, as well as two elective subjects. We also take part in the postgraduate education of pharmacists.
The department participates in PhD programs of the Doctoral School of the Semmelweis University. Our reaserch interest covers mainly the pharmacology of the central nervous system.
