It will provide you with state-of-the-art training in the area of preclinical toxicology with an emphasis on the molecular and in vivo aspects of toxicological assessment.

It is designed for individuals with a first degree in a scientific disciple who want to specialise in new medicines development or undertake employment in the pharmaceutical industry.

Why Bradford?

-Includes seminars by scientists from regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical companies
-This course is designed to meet the demand of employers and provide you with a comprehensive overview of the drug safety discipline within the drug development process

Modules

-Critical Appraisal of a Current Topic in Safety Pharmacology
-Preclinical Models for Drug Evaluation

Overview

This exciting new MSc is designed to equip students with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of drug discovery, integrating teaching in chemistry and biology to develop graduates who have exceptional scientific understanding and a host of transferable skills. The course blends the two fundamental disciplines underpinning drug delivery, and provides students with the opportunity to practise background theory within the productive research-led environments offered by the Schools of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. Nottingham has world-leading expertise in the areas of drug discovery and pharmaceutical science, and students on this course will have the chance to learn directly from staff at the forefront of the field.

The course content covers all aspects of drug delivery, and includes a 12-week (60 credit) research project based in our laboratories, encouraging the practical application of the theory taught within the programme.

The course will be technology-rich, using online learning packages to supplement face-to-face teaching and innovative assessment methods.

Aims

The overall aim of the MSc is to develop knowledge and understanding, cognitive skills, key skills and practical and professional skills in the area of Drug Discovery and Pharmaceutical Science. The overall drug discovery process from ‘concept to clinic’ provides the reference point for the education and training delivered in the more specific scientific and regulatory aspects.

Students will, therefore, be able to develop an understanding of the scientific principles underlying the main topic areas housed within the arena of drug discovery. In addition, upon completing the degree students will be able to make effective use of electronic communication and information search & retrieval to facilitate development of key critical skills with which to assess and analyse a broad array of scientific literature.
