First-level discipline code: 100700
First-level discipline name: pharmacy
1. Subject introduction
The first-level discipline of pharmacy belongs to the medical disciplines. Master’s degree in pharmacy covers pharmacy, pharmacology, pharmaceutical analysis, pharmaceutical chemistry, microbiology and biochemical pharmacy, etc. Students will be awarded master’s degree in medicine upon graduation. After graduation, graduates are usually engaged in drug research and development, drug production and management in large enterprises, scientific research institutes and medical management institutions.
Based on the advantages and characteristics of biopharmaceuticals, Jiangnan University has developed into 5 disciplines of pharmacology, microbiology and biochemical pharmacy, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmaceutical analysis and pharmacy. Now there are 6 professors, 32 associate professors and 8 lecturers. Among the in-service professors, there are 5 doctoral supervisors and more than 25 master supervisors. In addition, 94 percent of the in-service teachers have a doctoral degree, and nearly 40 percent have more than one year of overseas study and work experience. School attaches great importance to medicine, cultivating and developing one improved pharmaceutical teaching and scientific research platform, built in Jiangsu province biological medicine manufacturing engineering technology research center, ministry of science and biomedical engineering amplification technology pilot and enterprise incubation platform, participated in the construction of national fermentation engineering technology research center and bioactive products processing engineering technology research center of Jiangsu province; The relatively stable research laboratories of drug design and molecular pharmacology, pharmaceutical chemistry and drug synthesis, drug analysis and activity evaluation, pharmacy and new pharmaceutical materials, biomedical engineering, and microbial pharmacy and engineering have been established.
