PhD Research Track Drug Development
About the research track
This thematic track brings together researchers active in the field of Drug Development and Discovery, in both pre-clinical and clinical phases. The aim is to cover different computational and experimental aspects of drug development such as, but not limited to, medicinal chemistry, toxicity, pharmacokinetics, metabolism, studies in biological systems, pharmaceutical formulation and production.
Please send an email to the track leaders to receive information about track-relevant events on a regular basis.

We announce seminars to our participants via our email list. Seminars will cover both scientific presentations, emerging research areas as well as the development of “soft skills”, such as presentations, CV’s and paper writing.
The Track Day in Drug Development will take place on Thursday November 18th, 2021, 09.30-17.00h.
The theme for this year’s track day will be “Careers in Life Sciences”.
The following courses are targeted specifically towards the research track in Drug Development:
- Methods in Metabolomics and Metabolism
- Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (2021)
- Molecular Imaging with Focus on PET (Uppsala University, https://www.uu.se/en/admissions/master/selma/kursplan/?kKod=3FK285&lasar=)
