Prof. Rungpetch Sakulbumrungsil, Ph.D., the Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Chulalongkorn University on January 28, 2020. The Deans from both universities then introduced their delegation members and began the signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the development and promotion of education and research. A discussion following the signing resulted in several planned activities as the first step of implementing the MoU.
In the discussion, the Assistant Dean of International Affairs at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Chulalongkorn University Assoc.

This opportunity was welcomed by the UGM delegates, and they proposed to start working together in arranging joint researches and joint thesis supervisions.
The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Chulalongkorn University is now an important partner for the Faculty of Pharmacy UGM. With the newly established Master in Pharmacy Management Program at UGM, the delegates hope to benchmark from Chulalongkorn University and reinforce collaborations to develop the program.
