Course content

The Organic Chemistry: Drug Discovery MRes at UCL offers students the opportunity to follow an integrated course of research and interdisciplinary study. Students gain outstanding training in synthetic organic chemistry applied to drug design, together with a breadth of experience in several areas of synthetic methodology and chemical biology.

This degree involves a cutting-edge research project under the supervision of a member of staff at UCL and industry experts. Students will initially learn about the drug design process via a number of taught courses and in silico docking studies. They will then progress to the synthetic laboratory where they will prepare the compounds that they have designed in order to evaluate them experimentally as potential drug candidates.
