Course detail

- Description -

The MSc in Radiopharmaceutics & PET Radiochemistry at King's College London is unique, not only in the UK but worldwide. Radiopharmaceutics is a growing international industry facing a major skills shortage - graduates from this programme are in demand - whether in hospitals, preparing radiopharmaceuticals for cancer patients, in research in universities or industry or in the drug industry which is increasingly using PET (Positron Electron Tomography) as a major drug development tool.

The programme provides opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in the principles and practice of radiopharmaceutical science; manufacturing and quality assurance of radiopharmaceuticals; appreciation of the design and operation of accelerator machines including cyclotrons; synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals from cyclotron-produced radionuclides; application of radiopharmaceuticals in biomedical research and clinical nuclear medicine.

- Course purpose -

To educate, train and equip students from a chemistry, pharmacy or related background to enter employment as radiopharmaceutical scientists in a PET radiochemistry centre (cyclotron unit) or in a conventional radiopharmacy, to provide diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals to nuclear medicine centres or specialised commercial centres, or to study for PhD in this field.

- Course format and assessment -

The programme is assessed by a variety of mechanisms including: written examinations; practical laboratory work and reports; case studies and oral presentations; workshops; audio-visual presentations; and laboratory- or library-based research projects.

Career prospects

Expected destinations are the NHS and commercial nuclear medicine services, the pharmaceutical industry or PhD research.
