The Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences puts in a great effort to offer education on a high level. This education is supported by high-principled, qualitative and internationally appreciated research, typical for a university. Our pharmaceutical scientists, our biomedical, biochemical and biotechnological scientists and our veterinary scientists contribute to the international scientific debate.
This year the new structure for the higher education gradually became fully operative. The new degrees that can be obtained are ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Master’. Next to the continuous adjustment of its educational branches, our faculty has also taken advantage of this wave of modernization to make its programmes more transparent and attractive. Some master programmes and postgraduate certified courses are offered in English.
Moreover the faculty board supports five spearheads of research: preclinical drug discovery, neurosciences, genomics & proteomics, biopharmaceutical analysis and animal biosciences. Tenure track positions a available in the spearheads preclinical drug discovery, neurosciences and genomics & proteomics.
We are convinced that these education and research programmes, together with the dynamic efforts of our academic and administrative technical staff, will make the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences an important foreground player in future Flanders and Europe.
