Learn how to develop treatments for some of the world’s most challenging diseases of our time. You will develop key aspects of the drug discovery journey, from initial concept through to clinical treatment.
Research from the School of Pharmacy is transforming the lives of millions of people across the globe. Some of our recent contributions include:
developing an innovative materials discovery platform, leading to improved biomedical devices that reduce infection and improve healing
helping the NHS save £500m through research into the expansion of pharmacy services in England
influencing government policy internationally to establish community pharmacies as vaccination centres for influenza and COVID-19
This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. You will establish practical and professional skills from both the School of Pharmacy and the School of Life Sciences. You will learn to communicate complex ideas through a variety of formats, such as a simulated pitch to investors for funding. You will develop core practical skills in key areas that underpin drug discovery, such as synthesis of drugs, and in vitro and in vivo analysis.
You will benefit from a range of teaching approaches and methods from experts collaborating with, or working in, the pharmaceutical industry. The Schools have extensive links with local and global pharmaceutical organisations, including Sygnature Discovery, Excellerate Bioscience and GlaxoSmithKline. Members of our course team have won awards for excellence in teaching and student support. Our small group learning environment can help you settle in quickly and form a lasting network of connections.
A dedicated supervisor will support you during your research project. You will work alongside our researchers who are transforming lives and improving societies
