Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
The Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is located in the Second floor of the academic building of the college. The department provides a multidisciplinary and international environment that promotes enriching interactions among faculty, postdoctoral fellows, staff and graduate students.
Now graduate students are immediately integrated in the life of the department through their coursework, research rotation, students freely choose their research area and PH.D. advisor, while maintaining intellectual and scientific contacts with other units.
The faculty encourage students and post-doctoral fellows to initiate and pursue collaborations that require expertise in different but complementary disciplines such as Chemistry/Biology, Pharmacology/Structural Biology, Biochemistry/Cellular Biology and Molecular/Computational Biology.
Most of the post graduate students doing research in the department are in the Pharmaceutical Biotechnology track. The track offers a variety of research opportunities in basic and applied sciences such as mechanisms of antibiotic action, rational drug design, protein synthesis, protein folding, cancer research, microbial genomics, molecular and cellular biology and bioprocess technology.
Graduates from the Pharmaceutical Biotechnology track are expected to be able to assume research and administrative positions in the pharmaceutical industry, faculty and research positions in academia, and research and administrative positions in government agencies. Recent graduates have gone on to industrial research positions in biotechnology companies and to academic research and teaching positions at leading universities.
