The Course

As a researcher in the School of Pharmacy, you have the opportunity to liaise with leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Research in the School is diverse and multidisciplinary and is generally grouped around two distinct strands: 1) pharmacy education and community engagement with prescribing, and 2) physical pharmaceutics and drug development and delivery. Subsequently, there are opportunities for research students to work with academics across varied topics, including solid-state drug development and biologics delivery.

As a postgraduate student, you can benefit from specialist laboratory space and equipment, a wide range of training programmes designed to enhance your research and transferable skills, as well as support from dedicated academic supervisors.

All of our research students are encouraged to submit papers to scientific journals, present their findings at conferences in the UK and overseas, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

  • -Solid state drug development
  • -Crystal engineering of salts/polymorphs/co-crystals

  • -Nanomedicine and targeted drug delivery
  • -Mucosal delivery of biologics
  • -Mucosal models to study drug delivery
  • -Antimicrobials and vaccines
  • -Organic chemistry
  • -Bioconjugations and Bio-inspired chemistry
  • -Development of sequence selective DNA cross-linking agents
  • -Health education

  • -Application and use of evidence, and pharmacy-led clinical medication reviews

How You Study

Our research environment aims to support students through a specific framework. This covers all aspects of the postgraduate experience, including supervisor interaction, training and access to the facilities and allied support through the Directors of Research and Postgraduates Studies, from initial application to final completion.

All postgraduates are actively encouraged to prepare submission to scientific journals in their field. Students are expected to present their findings to national and international conferences, and also to participate in internal research meetings.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor(s), with the regularity of these varying depending on your own individual requirements, subject area and the stage of your programme.
