On 23 April 1949, the departments of physiology and pharmacology on the Solna campus were inaugurated by the then Crown Prince, later King Gustav VI Adolf. 

“As the first departments to move into the campus, we were pioneers and innovators even then. Since then, we continue to innovate and improve, drawing on the strong roots of our history. Since 1993 we are a single department, since 2018 our base is our premises in Biomedicum in Solna, and since 75 years ago our endeavour is to elevate the subjects of physiology and pharmacology," says Head of Department Sophie Erhardt. 

Celebrating in many ways 

The anniversary year will offer a variety of celebrations. During the actual anniversary on 23 April, a full day will be held for invited guests and representatives from the department, but even for those who will not be there, the anniversary will be marked in various ways, for example in Biomedicum and on the website. Furthermore, a new publication on the history of FyFa will be published shortly.
