The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen (Danish: Det Sundhedsvidenskabelige Fakultet Københavns Universitet) houses 13 departments, 24 centres, four schools and three hospitals.[1] In January 2012 the Faculty of Health Sciences merged with the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Industries and the veterinary part of the Faculty of Life Sciences into a new Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

The Faculty educates students in the areas of Human Health and Medical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science and Oral Health Sciences.

The Faculty library is part of the Royal Library and is shared with the Faculty of Life Sciences.

Building projects[edit]

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is building new facilities for international health and medical research and education.

The Maersk Building – Extension of Panum[edit]

Construction commences in 2012 and is expected to be completed in 2015. The Panum complex grows from 105,000 square metres to 140,000 square metres. The 42,700 new square metres (approx.) will primarily be dedicated to research and educational activities, canteen and bicycle parking facilities. First, 7,700 square metres will be demolished to accommodate a new forecourt with a main entrance, new park areas and a doubling of the bicycle parking facilities.

The new building will rise to a height of 75 metres, slightly higher than Rigshospitalet's helipad at 71 metres. On the top floor of the Maersk Building, there will be public access to an observation platform.[2]

Pharma Science Building[edit]

The new building will have 5,130 square meters of floor space. It will cost DKK 175 million. Of this DKK 14 million will be spent renovating an existing neighbouring building at Nørre Allé 71, which will be integrated with the new building

The Pharma Science Building will house modern laboratories for pharmaceutical research. The new research building will meet the huge need for additional laboratory facilities at the Department of Pharmaceutics and Analytical Chemistry and at the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology. The new Pharma Science Building also adds new interdisciplinary joint facilities, where researchers can meet and find inspiration for further collaboration and innovation.[3]
