Vision and objectives

PharmAround has been established as an interactive platform of mutual cooperation, education and experience sharing in the field of drug development. It interconnects universities, higher vocational schools, institutions (hospitals) participating in development and clinical studies of the drugs, pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, public institutions and patients. 
From 2011 – 2014 Pharmaround was carried out thanks to the Operational Programme Education for Competitiveness (OP VK), it was funded from the European Social Fund and state budget of the Czech Republic. This phase resulted in a complete system of specialized training courses for the students, physicians, teachers and researchers , who had been missing the possibility of complex education in the field of drug development. A number of internships, exchange stays and excursions took place within the scope of the project. The project activities culminate by the annual PharmAround conference and by the summer school. The project was carried out by the Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University ( Partners of the project State Institute for Drug Control (, Parexel (, Teva (, School of Nursing and the High Vocational School of Health Merhautova Brno ( and High Vocational School of Health Žerotínovo náměstí Brno (
Since 2014 Pharmaround continues its succesful activities and focuses on the area of education and mutual cooperation not only in translational research and clinical trials but in the whole lifecycle of a medicinal product and its infuence on patients. Medicinal product’s lifecycle consists of several phases. First it must pass through a demanding research and clinical trials before it can be authorised. Nevertheless, marketing authorisation granted by the State Institute for Drug Control and placing on the market, that is not all. Next, it is necessary to monitor the medicinal product’s safety and many other characteristics. The educational activities of Pharmaround cover all the development phases of medicinal products and so the participants get very useful knowledge for the real practice.
To ensure and develop  these activities Pharmaround, endowment fund was established at the end of 2014.
