Dear prospective students, parents, alumni, investors and friends,
Welcome to the website of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) School of Pharmacy! I hope that your visit to this website will lead you to a new land where you will find new career directions and business development opportunities.
Drug therapy for human diseases is experiencing fundamental changes due to the incredible technological advances from traditional medicine to biotechnological and even personal medicines. In this changing time, pharmacy education and pharmaceutical research in China have seen an interesting phenomenon: while competition among educational and technological providers becomes increasingly intensive (as over 260 pharmacy schools are running in China), the society and pharmaceutical industry are facing difficulties to find qualified people for their work forces. SJTU School of Pharmacy was founded to fill this gap between the supplies and the changing demands.
Our faculty, staff and administrators understand that the evolution of an academic institution must keep pace with social and economic changes. As a young pharmacy school within one of the largest universities in China, SJTU School of Pharmacy is located in a well-developed economic region in Shanghai. The School’s modern facility and creative research environment have attracted a group of leading scholars, of new and traditional disciplines, from all over the world to fill its faculty body. Now the school has been ranked among the most recognized pharmacy schools in China and become a national leader in pharmacy education as well as a cradle for research and development of a whole new generation of medicines.
I am confident that you will find SJTU School of Pharmacy as ideal place for education, career development, industrial collaboration and investment into the future.
