Full time September MSc One year Award winner

About the course

Find out how scientists discover chemical candidates for new pharmaceuticals. You'll learn how to meet the pharmaceutical industry’s increasing demands for drugs that can treat illnesses safely and more effectively, overcome antibiotic resistance, and be produced at a lower financial and environmental cost.

This course covers the drug discovery and design techniques used in the pharmaceutical industry. You’ll study topics such as pharmacology, toxicology and genomics as you learn how target molecules to treat specific diseases are identified, characterised and optimised for potential clinical trials.

Student Profile

Zeyu Lin

"I really like how varied the course is. Students aren’t restricted to a single area, which means students are able to dig deeper into topics that really interest them. Although I began the course with limited background knowledge in biology and pharmacology, the support of the teaching staff has enabled me to succeed on the course thus far."
