With a long tradition of 136 years of academic activities in the pharmacy and 56 years in medical biochemistry, FBF, as one of the oldest faculties within University of Zagreb, has been the pillar of university development and biomedical disciplines. We successfully surpassed all the turmoil and trials in the past, contributing to the development of pharmacy and medical biochemistry in Southeast Europe, and today we are proud of our academic excellence in teaching, scientific and technical achievements, and social responsibility.
