Medicinal Chemistry

Specialist classes focus on disease targets, design of selectively-acting prototype drugs, synthetic and mimetic strategies in producing drug prototypes, and the refinement of activity when a promising compound is identified. Case studies of well-known drugs are used to illustrate the principles. Students will also receive training in relevant practical areas and will then complete a research project.

Entry requirements

All students are admitted as prospective MChem Honours students.
The entry requirements differ depending on the course and are largely a reflection of whether the course carries single or dual professional accreditation. The grades specified should be understood as minimum entry requirements that may be raised at times of exceptional demand. If it is necessary to do this, the higher standard will be applied fairly to the complete applicant field in any given year.

Course modules

Advanced organic chemistry; chemical biology; principles of modern medicinal chemistry; advanced biochemical methods; project and dissertation.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through both written and practical examinations and submission of a dissertation (MSc students only).
