Technical Services and Scientific Equipments


The Department of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences (DSF) of the University of Padova provides competitive and multidisciplinary support in many scientific projects and purposes. International research partnership, as well as collaborations with public or private institutions and companies, are strictly regulated through well dressed agreements that preserve the analytical procedures and protect the obtained results.

All the analytical areas, the chemical and the biological laboratories, and the two animal houses are fully equipped and everything is day by day supervised by an efficient staff including technicians and expert research teams. The access to the scientific facilities and the analytical equipment are scheduled from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm by an efficient on-line booking service. Experimental research is supported by a wide-range of international scientific literature access.
