About the Disciplinary Domain

The Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy consists of two faculties – Medicine and Pharmacy, 11 departments and 13 research centres. We conduct research with both breadth and edge. Many projects are run in close collaboration with the industry, community and Uppsala University Hospital.

One of Uppsala University's scientific areas of strength is Life Science. We are ranked among the top 40 in the world in the area (Times Higher Education). It is a recognition that makes us proud but not yet satisfied. Here we present a selection of our ongoing operations.

The Office for Medicine and Pharmacy serves as a support for the Disciplinary Domain. The Office also includes Student Services and MedfarmDoIT
