Pharmaceutical Technical University
In the 2012 FIP Centenary Declaration, pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists took responsibility for improving the health and treatment outcomes of people around the world by improving the development, distribution and responsible use of medicines. Achieving this goal requires a sufficient number of competent pharmaceutical workers and scientists who can provide a full range of pharmaceutical services and meet the challenges of healthcare worldwide.
In this regard, the Government of Uzbekistan initiated the construction of the National Research University with a capacity of 4,000 students, which will be the center of the scientific and educational part of the innovative scientific and industrial pharmaceutical cluster. There also will be located inside and outside areas of the Sports Complex on the territory of the University.
