About

The Interuniversity Master in Drug Discovery is a university training course aimed at graduates in Pharmacy, Chemistry and other degrees included in the areas of Health Sciences and Experimental Sciences who want to focus on Research and Drug Discovery activities in the industry pharmaceutical and in other companies or public or private research organizations. The training of specialists in this field is essential for the Research-Development-Innovation process that characterizes the most advanced societies.

The participating universities, Universidad Complutense, San Pablo-CEU and Alcalá , group three of the Pharmacy Faculties existing in the CAM, and also have the collaboration of various CSIC Institutes, including the Institutes of Medical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry and the Biological Research Center. During the years in which the doctorate program has been developed, several leading pharmaceutical companies have also participated, which will maintain their participation in the Master.

goals

The primary objective of this Inter- University Master's Degree is to provide advanced and integrated training in the field of Drug Discovery. This University Master's Degree will allow students access to doctoral studies, allowing them to enter the research career and, on the other hand, will allow them to obtain direct employment in the pharmaceutical industry. These objectives will be achieved through reinforced and complemented theoretical training in the design, synthesis, study and characterization of bioactive compounds, with laboratory practices and workshops, including an experimental Master's Thesis, and more direct contact with pharmaceutical companies. through visits and with the School of Drug Discovery.

Recipients

Course aimed at graduates in Pharmacy, Chemistry and other degrees included in the areas of Health Sciences and Sciences who want to focus on Drug Research and Discovery activities in the pharmaceutical industry and in other related companies, as well as in public organizations or private investigation.

Why study this master?

The University Master's Degree covers the entire drug discovery process, as well as some stages of its development. Both public and private basic research centers and universities will greatly value the multidisciplinary training provided by the Master. But without a doubt, it will be the sector of the pharmaceutical industry and the small industry of high technological and biotechnological innovation that is most interested in graduates, as demonstrated by the support they have already given to the University Master's Degree.
