MSc Pharmacology and Drug Discovery (HLST088)
MSc Pharmacology and Drug Discovery with Professional Experience (HLST138)
This course runs in September and January.
The Pharmacology and Drug Discovery MSc course has been designed to react to the increasing demand for suitably trained professional pharmacologists. This is essential to speed up the critical task of translating basic laboratory medical research into commercially-ready medical biotechnology and drugs that can be used to diagnose and treat patients.
The Pharmacology and Drug Discovery course also encompasses an emerging area of science that is known as ‘Translational Medicine’ and needs a new breed of Pharmacologist who can apply basic science knowledge and skills to experimental study design, management and data analysis, and who understands the legislation and other regulatory procedures surrounding disease treatment.
The course will also cover relevant biotechnical innovations associated with pharmacology and drug discovery, as well as both classical clinical trial design and health-outcomes research.
Our course is designed to provide such specialists by applying basic and clinical science to topics including diagnosis, understanding and treatment of disease, supported by our excellent staff, research expertise and laboratory facilities.
The MSc Pharmacology and Drug Discovery with Professional Experience, is an extended full-time Masters programme with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, students have the option of undertaking an internship with a host organisation or, alternatively, campus-based professional experience.
Internships are subject to a competitive application and selection process and the host organisation may include the University. Internships may be paid or unpaid, and this will depend on what is being offered and agreed with the host organisation. Students who do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship will undertake campus-based professional experience, which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer students the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
