MRes Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Science

Course Description

This course covers a diverse range of materials, pharmaceutical and medicinal research and includes a substantial research led project.

This course enables you to develop and further your knowledge of pharmaceutical and medicinal sciences, with a carefully put together range of core modules. You can expand your interests further by selecting a pharmaceutical led research project within one of our diverse range of internationally recognised pharmaceutical and medicinal science research groups (alongside PhD students and post doctoral research fellows).

This is a new course which follows on from our well-established BSc Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, BSc Chemistry and MChem Chemistry cluster of programmes. Our staff were entered in the Subjects Allied to Heath Care 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and were ranked as 4* (world-leading). These results put pharmaceutical and medicinal science research at NTU at the highest level and will inevitably appeal to potential students interested in furthering their studies in pharmaceutical and medicinal science.

We have links with scientist from AstraZeneca and Vectura who deliver some of the module content relevant to their workplace. Other guest lecturers from a variety of other companies and universities also present their research.

(Student Profile)

Juliet Adam

"I feel really happy for the opportunity to proceed on a placement in the chemical industry.

"For me it is a dream come true and the opportunity of a lifetime. I will get to work with professionals in the industry and receive additional training in many of the analytical techniques I have been taught at University.

"I do not think anything compares to the experience gained on a work placement during one's schooling years. I will encourage anybody who has an opportunity to grab the option of proceeding on a placement as part of their taught course."
