Research Areas

Research at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University spans all fields of pharmaceutical sciences

Cooperatio Program “Pharmaceutical Sciences”

The Charles University Cooperatio Program “Pharmaceutical Sciences” (PharmSci) aims to coordinate research activities at 6 faculties of the Charles University: the Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové and all five Faculties of Medicine.

The most important priority in the PharmSci research area is to increase in its overall quality, outcomes and implementation of the research results in practice. We aim to further strengthen our infrastructure and capacities for the development of excellence in research and innovation, to substantially extend the long-term cooperation with the application sector, to foster international collaboration in the research, and to make use of the infrastructure both for research and education.

Our key priority is to stimulate and motivate academic and research staff to focus on the outreach of their research. We emphasize quality over quantity of publications.

Another priority is establishing larger multidisciplinary teams that can produce competitive, conclusive, and high-quality research results.

Board of the Program:

Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové

The research activities at the Charles University Faculty of Pharmacy involve all aspects of contemporary pharmaceutical sciences. A wide range of theoretical and experimental approaches are applied to study both new and established pharmaceuticals, predominantly small molecules of organic origin, with the capacity of ameliorating pathological processes in the human body.

For the PharmSci program, the research is organized by following Science Topics and Workgroups. Some of them have been newly established or reorganized in the transition between the PROGRESS and COOPERATIO programs.
