Course content

Medicinal chemistry is an exciting and rapidly developing science concerned with the chemistry underpinning the design, discovery and development of new pharmaceuticals.

The search for new drugs to combat serious illnesses is an important and exciting challenge at the forefront of medical research. As a medicinal chemist, you can have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of millions of people worldwide.
On the course, you will explore the wider context of drug discovery, business and healthcare, as well as developing the knowledge and laboratory skills needed to design drugs. You will also investigate the relationship between medicinal chemists and drug discovery companies with stakeholders such as patients, investors and governments.

There are opportunities for you to gain hands-on experience within a medicinal chemistry team during your research project.
