Drug Discovery MSc
Developed in consultation with industry experts, this course is aimed at students with a background in chemistry, biosciences, pharmacy or pharmacology who are looking to move into the exciting field of drug development. You will become familiar with a range of concepts and research techniques in drug discovery including target identification and validation, screening platforms, optimization of small molecule drugs and biotherapeutics, and the importance of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
Depending on your undergraduate degree, you will also follow either a biology or chemistry training track alongside your drug discovery studies. This will enable you to gain a strong background in both disciplines, strengthening your subject-related and practical skills appropriate to your career aspirations.
