DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACOLOGY AND PHARMACY
2019 marked the 10th anniversary of the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacy at The University of Hong Kong and the formation of the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree programme, dedicated to the training of competent pharmacists to service the needs of the community.
In the past decade, the Department has developed its pharmacy programme (BPharm, MMedScs and Master of Advanced Pharmacy programme) like no other — a combination of solid knowledge-based teaching, problem-based learning, simulated online learning and last but not least, interprofessional learning with other health care disciplines. Through small class sizes teaching, our students are able to closely interact with our experienced teachers and other students to acquire the communication skills needed in their lifelong journey.
RESEARCH THEMES AND FOCUSES
Together with the Nanjing University, the Department is co-hosting the State Key Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. Based on our professorial staff’s track records and self-evaluation of strengths, four Research Clusters have been identified: (i) Cardiovascular Research; (ii) Ageing and Related Diseases; (iii) Drug Delivery and Translational Research; and (iv) Big Data for Medication Safety and Pharmacoeconomics. Members in all the clusters are well funded by competitive grants (AoE, CRF, GRF, HMRF, NSFC 973), State Key Laboratories, contract research supports and international funding agencies.
