Department of Pharmaceutical Biology

The Department of Pharmaceutical Biology was founded in 2012. The head of the department is Professor Katalin Sipos.

The Department is responsible for teaching the undergraduate courses „Pharmaceutical Biology” for 1st year Pharmacy students, as well as „Pharmaceutical Biochemistry” in 2nd year. We also offer eligible courses for students, as well as PhD courses for postgraduate students.

The Department’s research is based on the molecular and cell biological studies on the iron metabolism and diseases related to changes in iron homeostasis (for further information, see Research in the menu). Beyond research activities, we give insight to Student Researchers into the scientific work, and support PhD students’ work.
