Ph.D. Pharmaceutical Science

TUMS is the oldest and most well-known medical center in Iran, nationally as well as internationally. TUMS, as one of the country’s top research universities, accepts applications from the most qualified students. It also has the largest schools of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, rehabilitation, allied medical sciences, public health, advanced technologies in medicine, nutritional sciences and dietetics, and nursing and midwifery in Iran as well as a virtual school.

 

The PSRC has designed a Ph.D. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences which is “research and supervisor based.” After passing a one year M. Phill successful candidates will start their Ph.D. courses that will last 3 years. Courses in both stages are based on research methods in the field of pharmaceutical sciences depending on the mentor’s main interests.  The PSRC represents Ph.D. by Research in two main lines:

 

1. Synthesis and biological effects of new compounds

      Professors Abbas Shafiee and Alireza Foroumadi

 2. Mechanisms of action and toxicity of novel products

      Professor Mohammad Abdollahi
