The course is designed to give chemists with a first degree a good understanding of how synthetic organic chemistry provides the foundation for the discovery of new medicines.
Course content is aimed at developing chemistry skills in the context of drug design, for example through lectures and interactive sessions with industry experts, molecular modelling and an extended multidisciplinary project.
Topics span chemistry, natural products and synthesis, through to metabolism, pharmacology and information, patents and IPR.
• This course has been designed for those targetting a career in the fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotech and associated custom research organizations (CROs). • Key course components in medicinal chemistry and information/patents/IPR will be delivered by industry experts. • Learn about the whole ‘Bench to Bedside’ scientific landscape, including chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, and information science. • A perfect transition programme towards industry or a PhD.
