Mission Statement

The Vienna Faculty Center of Pharmaceutical Sciences aims to be recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in pharmacy research and education. We promote the discovery, development, and appropriate use of medications for the welfare and the safety of the public.

The range of topics in Pharmaceutical Sciences aims at the identification and the characterization of both new biologically active natural products and synthetic drugs and at understanding of their interactions with human targets on a molecular level using in silico, in vitro, and in vivo models.

Based on this knowledge, new lead compounds and disease relevant targets are investigated and delivery systems for pharmaceutical active ingredients are developed.

Different aspects of this range of topics have been defined as research focus like Drug Discovery from Nature, Computational Life Sciences and Nutrition-associated Molecular Mechanisms of Ageing and are represented e.g. in the doctoral program Molecular Drug Targets.
