Course content

Studying with academic and industrial experts who are currently active in natural product research and drug discovery, on our one-year Master’s programme you'll gain the key skills, and discover the latest cutting-edge methods, in natural product discovery.

Your learning will combine lectures, seminars and laboratory practicals, as well as an independent research project and self-guided study. Our expert team is based across the Norwich Research Park, including the School of Pharmacy and the John Innes Centre. Guest speakers from the pharmaceutical and biotech sector will also present sessions covering topics such as the industrial applications of natural product research.

In your first semester, you’ll gain a solid theoretical foundation in all aspects of the subject, including natural product drug discovery, human physiology and the targeting of human diseases, and natural product chemistry and genetics.

In your second semester, you’ll put the theory into practice, designing, executing and interpreting your own experiments using the very latest methods and technologies. All of which will culminate in your hands-on, laboratory-based Master’s research project, which you'll deliver with the expert guidance of a member of staff.
