PHARMACY PROGRAMME

Faculty of Pharmacy

PROGRAM SUMMARY

Research mode programmes offered by the Faculty of Pharmacy emphasise on inter and multidisciplinary research areas in pharmacy including, but not limited to drug discovery, pharmaceutical product development, pharmacy education and quality management of medicine. These research oriented programmes are by nature, laboratory-based, a combination of laboratory and survey based, or survey-based in various areas of pharmacy such as:

Drug and Herbal Development: focuses on the identification of chemical leads from natural products for specific therapeutic efficacy leading to the development of new drug candidates against complex and challenging drug targets prior to clinical trials and evaluation of herbs and their products for quality, safety and efficacy as therapeutic agents. 

Drug Delivery Technology: focuses on contemporary drug delivery issues in order to build rational strategies to drug design resulting in advanced drug delivery. These include acquiring knowledge of the physicochemical properties of traditional and biotechnology-based drug moieties as well as understanding the mechanisms of cellular uptake and transport across biological membranes. 

Quality Management of Medicine (QMM): focuses on patterns of drug usage, efficacy of treatment regimens, adverse drug reaction reporting, health awareness, patient education, pharmacoeconomics, national medicines policy and its implementation. 

LIFE AT THE FACULTY

Our educational facilities are located at the UKM Jalan Raja Muda Campus, Kuala Lumpur. Throughout your research journey with us, you will have the opportunity to experience our world-class laboratories, and for selected students, our modern teaching hospital (Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz in Cheras). The city campus also locates other health-related faculties i.e. Faculty of Health Sciences and Faculty of Dentistry. The campus provides a good platform for you to get to know postgraduate students from other health-related research programmes to enhance your research networking. Other than the usual on-campus facilities such as the library and cafés, the city campus offers a great diversity with easy access to many interesting spots such as places to eat and drink, shopping malls, recreational parks, theatre halls, and art galleries. Although on-campus student accommodation is currently not an option for postgraduate students, you may uncover private off-campus accommodation prior to your arrival with a guide from the Faculty of Pharmacy Postgraduate Student Society.
