About PharmaSchool

School of Pharmaceutical Sciences (PharmaSchool) was founded in 1672. At the time, the pharmacy was the obvious work place. Today, pharmacists also work in modern pharmaceutical companies dealing with the universe of molecules finding new solutions in terms of fighting diseases.

The Dane Hans Christian Ørsted was interested in chemistry and therefore became a pharmacist in 1797. He was one of the leading people of the Danish Golden Age's in the 18th century and one of his close friends was the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. Hans Christian Ørsted discovered electromagnetism in 1820 and was one of many pharmacists graduate of the University of Copenhagen who made remarkable research.
