Welcome to the Institute of Pharmacy at the FSU Jena

Pharmacy at FSU Jena in Research and Teaching


A research focus at the Institute of Pharmacy is on the identification of new natural products with bioactive properties and their mechanisms of action as potential drugs in the therapy of inflammations and tumors. New potential drugs are being analyzed using modern anayltical methods and binding partners of such compounds are identified using biochemical approaches. Pharmaceutical formulations are developed to direct the compounds to their targets in the human body. You will find informations on research topics on the websites of the individual sections of the Institute of Pharmacy.    


Pharmacy is a multidisciplinary life science. Thus, the drug molecule itself and the derived pharmaceutical product (the medicine) are in the focus of academic teaching and research at the Institute of Pharmacy. Successfully completed studies in pharmacy are requried to work independently as a pharmacist in may different fields of activity.

On these webpages we provide informations concerning the study of pharmacy and lectures offerend by the Institute of Pharmacy. Please note that because the study of Pharmacy in Germany ends with a state examination, all lectures are given in German language and our websites listing the curriculum are only available in German.
