Our Department, as an academic institute has both teaching and research activities. It was founded as the first independent Hungarian Department of Pharmacology in 1872, and it received its current name (Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy) in 1999. In the frame of gradual education, we teach basic and clinical Pharmacology through two semesters for 4th year medical and dental students in Hungarian, English and German languages.
Besides the educational activity there is a wide-scale research in our department. Our scientific work focuses on various fields of pharmacology, including for example cardiovascular-, behavioral pharmacological-, gastrointestinal- and auditory experiments, applying in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro methodologies.
