Medicinal Chemistry – interdisciplinary area of studies and scientific research, which involves chemistry, biology, pharmacy and other sciences for creation and development of new medicines. The scope of the programme is preparation of qualified, motivated and creative specialists, who have deep knowledge of chemistry and research skills, are able to formulate and solve the issues of medicinal chemistry science and pharmaceutical industry, seeking to work at the high tech scientific and industrial companies, which produce and supply pharmaceutical preparations, or to continue their education in doctoral studies.
Top reasons to study at KTU:
1. Study programme is implemented together with the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences using the latest equipment, laboratories and software of 2 universities and Santaka valley.
2. Both graduates from chemistry and medicine can deepen knowledge in the development of new medicaments.
3. Outstanding links with local industry and academic partners for cooperative placement, collaborative research and academic mobility.

_“UAB “Valentis” is a part of international group of companies, which are active in all stages of
the development of medicines: starting with development of preparation, its registration, production, and finishing with its selling and pharmacovigilance. RTD activities and production performed in Lithuania needs highly qualified and creative employees. After review of the scheduled main results of these studies, it can be concluded that specialists of medicinal chemistry will have a good theoretical preparation and will be able to apply their knowledge in practice. It is very likely that interdisciplinary nature of the preparation of specialists will enable a more versatile implementation of their ideas.”_– UAB “Valentis”, Member of the Board, Vaidotas Deveikis.
