Pharmacy and Biomedical Science

These programmes are suitable to those who have an active interest in practice based research and professional practice issues; they provide a framework for the demonstration and development of advanced professional knowledge and skills; relevance and application of the research to the professional environment are a pivotal feature of the programme and refection on practice are integral to the learning process.

Course modules

Biomaterials and Drug Delivery Research areas include: Controlled and targeted drug delivery Bioadhesion/mucoadhesion Biomolecular recognition Bioadhesion control Pharmacy Practice Research areas include: Investigation of the role of pharmacy in health and wellbeing support (e.g. Healthy Living Pharmacy) Development and evaluation of new approaches to pharmacy education Risk management and pharmacovigilance Cell Biology and Pharmacology Research areas include: Investigating mechanisms and biomarkers of lung inflammation in cystic fibrosis Novel strategies to improve inhaled drug delivery and novel inhibitors of neutrophil elastase, glial cells in the brain, including oligodendroglia and their precursors in Multiple Sclerosis Primary brain tumours as well as astrocytic response to various neuropathological conditions Roles of tensins in cancer and in neuronal/glial cell biology Electrophysiology and biochemistry of ion channels, as well as their roles in the cellular physiology of human health and disease The neural and hormonal mechanisms involved in the regulation of food intake and obesity The mechanisms underpinning CNS disorders, such as dementia, depression and anxiety, as well as disorders of the gut, such as colitis and irritable bowl syndrome Epigenetics and Developmental Biology Research areas include: Molecular and genetic medicine, e.g. neuromuscular disease and neuronal function in disease, with particular emphasis on the molecular pathology of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and the role of dystrophin and related proteins Control of neuronal identity and axon guidance in the early brain The genetic programming of muscle differentiation Using Xenopus and chicken as model organisms, aimed at establishing the role of genes that are important in developmental processes
