This module surveys a prominent area of contemporary medical science: the molecular understanding of disease and its use in the design of drugs to treat different disease states and conditions. You'll be introduced to a range of drug therapy topics, including heart disease, infectious diseases (including bacterial and viral), cancer, and neuropharmacology. You will also have the opportunity to undertake independent research, culminating in the production of a literature review which is excellent preparation for the MSc project module (S810).
