Chemistry for Drug Discovery
The aim of the course is to provide experience and training in the chemical aspects of the drug discovery process, and involves a combination of lecture based units, research training and a research project. The course is ideal for someone considering a career in the pharmaceutical industry, or as a stepping stone to a PhD in a related area. The course gives students an understanding of the development of new drugs; from the cellular processes that are important to target, through to the synthesis of new medicinal compounds. Students will be given advanced training in teaching laboratories, which will lead to their individual Masters Drug Discovery research project. The course is made up of 3 semesters over 12 months. Over this time students cover 90 credits worth of units, which include 12 credits of optional units per semester. The first 2 semesters consist of taught material, including Advanced Practical Laboratories, with exams at the end of each semester. The 3rd semester is focused on the student's practical project which is carried out in the research labs.
