About us

The Practical Course on Pharmacology offers practical classes on a myriad of topics regarding pharmacology to undergraduates from private and public institutions throughout the country.


The course consists of 12 practical units, each offered by one research lab.


Each unit is composed of a small theoretical class to provide them with the necessary information to the following half of the unit: the practical part.


The practical classes are generally held at each of the teacher’s working labs.


At the end of each day, the results of the students’ lab work are discussed by graduate students and the teacher who manages that lab - the one in which the course is held on that day. 


The classes are taught by the Graduate Program students at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, at UFRJ, always under close supervision and tutoring of the Program’s faculty.

Target Audience

The event is targeted to undergraduates from private and public institutions throughout the country, mainly for students from universities lacking quality scientific research.


Prof. Patricia Dias Fernandes, Ph.D
