Course overview

In our search for better medicines to improve healthcare in an ageing population, for safer agrochemicals to aid food production for a growing population, and for advanced materials for new technologies, it may come as no surprise to acknowledge that chemistry plays a dominant role. Without chemistry, the necessary scientific advances will simply not be made to meet these global challenges and to secure our future.

Chemistry is often viewed as demanding in its need for energy and natural resources. We have to ensure that chemistry is safe, efficient and, above all, sustainable – chemistry that is benign by design. Sustainability is an issue facing the entire global chemicals industry, our vision is to train a new generation of scientists to find innovative 'green' resource and energy efficient solutions that have the lowest possible environmental impact; demonstrate social responsibility; and make a positive contribution to economic growth.

This course builds upon our international track record in green chemistry, particularly in the fields of synthetic chemistry, catalysis, new technologies, materials science, process engineering and entrepeneurship. Course material covers all aspects of modern green and sustainable chemistry including feedstocks, energy, sustainable synthesis (including biocatalysis) and industrial process design. Formal lectures are complemented by a 60 credit project based in our world-leading research laboratories and designed to reinforce and apply many of the concepts delivered during lectures. This MSc programme is highly interdisciplinary. It capitalises on strong established links between Chemistry, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Nottingham Business School to provide both breadth and depth in the scope of the MSc degree.

Course details

The principle objective of this MSc Green and Sustainable Chemistry is to train the next generation of scientists to appreciate, assess and address the challenges of sustainability across chemistry using industries through the implementation of robust, innovative science and technology.

Candidates will, therefore, develop an excellent operating knowledge of contemporary methods of synthesis, analysis and process design optimized for both energy and reaction mass efficiency. Graduates will be equipped with the tools and experience to critically evaluate comparable reaction pathways and make evidenced decision in the design and execution of efficient chemical processes key to the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, fine chemical and other chemical using industries. Furthermore, upon completing this degree, students will be able to make effective use of electronic communication and information search & retrieval to facilitate the development and dissemination of key critical skills with which to assess and analyse complex problems.

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.

This course offers advanced training for biological, chemical and physical scientists (pure and applied) for careers in the pharmaceutical, food/nutrition, health-care, biomedical, oil and other important industries or as a basis for entry to MRes or PhD.

Biomolecular Technology underpins the production of drug delivery systems, the making of healthier food products, the design of health-care products, the making of antisera and vaccines - and even the efficient extraction of oil from the harsh environment of a deep well: these are among the biotechnology processes which depend in fundamental terms on our ability to handle giant molecular complexes of living origin. Furthermore, molecular biologists and chemists are now increasingly able to ‘engineer’ new types of proteins and complexes over and beyond those which 3 billion years of evolution have provided.

Industry needs skilled personnel capable of understanding how these molecules may be used in an industrial context and the processes of gene cloning and protein engineering.

It is taught by the School of Biosciences in conjunction with the University's Schools of Pharmacy, Biomedical Sciences and Clinical Sciences and The School of Biosciences at the University of Leicester. Experts from local and national industry also contribute, ensuring access to the latest developments in the field.

A 3 month industrial placement module offers an exciting opportunity to discover first hand the needs of modern industry and provides advanced training for employment and further academic studies.
By suitable arrangement non-UK students can do this in their normal country of residence.

Applicants should hold first degrees at honours level in any Biological, Chemical or Physical Science subject (e.g. Biochemistry, Chemistry, Pharmacy, Genetics, Food Sciences, Plant Sciences, Physics). Suitably motivated candidates with Engineering or Mathematics degrees will also be considered.

A number of scholarships and European bursaries may be available.
