About

Drug Discovery degree offered at University of Bath is aimed at students with a background in chemistry, biosciences, pharmacy or pharmacology. 

Overview

 This course is aimed at students with a background in chemistry, biosciences, pharmacy or pharmacology. You will become familiar with a range of concepts and research techniques in drug discovery including target identification and validation, screening platforms, optimisation of small molecule drugs and biotherapeutics, and the importance of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

Depending on your undergraduate degree, you will also follow either a biology or chemistry training track alongside your drug discovery studies. This will enable you to build up your practical skills and gain a strong background in both disciplines. You’ll be taught by academics from the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology and the Department of Chemistry, benefitting from the expertise of both departments. The course has been developed in consultation with industry experts, so you will graduate with the core science skills that are highly sought after by the pharmaceutical industry. You'll gain the knowledge and practical skills for a career in the pharmaceutical industry or for further postgraduate study and research in medicinal chemistry, biomedical sciences and pharmacology.
