PhD in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Industrial Innovation


The new Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Industrial Innovation Graduate Program prepares scientists to address problems in basic and applicative research in academia and industry. The program gives students a foundation in chemistry and pharmaceutical sciences for understanding complex processes at an atomic level, and provides training in the sciences related to their industrial applications. This interdisciplinary study entails training in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry (covering aspects that range from synthesis to structure and function at different scales and with applications that range from bioorganic to green chemistry, from material science to nanoscience and energy), as well as training in pharmaceutical sciences (covering subjects that range from drug design to pharmaceutical technology and advanced analytical methods).

The program is provided by the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Drug Sciences.
