Drug Design and Discovery
Analytical bioscience &ndash the investigation of biomolecules as exploitable biomarkers – is a growing field, driven by improving analytical methods with increasing sensitivity. Following completion of the Human Genome Project, the pharmaceutical industry is preparing for a revolution in cancer and inherited disorder therapies.
This course is training a new generation of bioscientists to meet the challenges at the interface of biology and chemistry, and to apply pharmaceutical and analytical knowledge directly to improve quality of life.
