Our areas of research within pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences include:
- development of novel nucleic acid-based diagnostics and therapeutics;
- modelling and simulation of pharmacokinetics, drug-drug interactions and pharmacodynamics in healthy virtual populations;
- modelling and simulation of pharmacokinetics, drug-drug interactions and pharmacodynamics in patient populations;
- analysis of inter-individual variability in drug metabolizing enzyme activity;
- optimal design of early phase clinical trials with new therapies and drug combinations;
- applications of systems biology approach to prediction of drug absorption, distribution and Elimination;
- extrapolation of in vitro data to predict in vivo pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics;
- applications of PKPD in drug development and therapeutics, particularly endocrinology, drug abuse, and paediatric pharmacology.
Training and development
All of our postgraduate research students attend the Doctoral Academy Training Programme delivered by the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development (CARD).
The Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences programme offered at The University of Manchester provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy.
The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.
Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
