The goal of this Experimental Pharmacology and Therapeutics programme from the University College London (UCL) is to teach advanced experimental approaches in pharmacology, a science that has seen theoretical development for over a century at UCL.


About this Degree

The Experimental Pharmacology and Therapeutics programme from the University College London (UCL) aims to attract graduates with a good degree in the Life Sciences, Pharmaceutics, Biotechnology or Pharmacy, with an interest in pharmacological approaches, theory and practice of drug-receptor interactions, and methodologies employed in the identification and evaluation of potential drug targets.

The MSc Experimental Pharmacology and Therapeutics is a joint programme between two academic groups with outstanding teaching and research profiles in the field of pharmacology; the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology (Division of Biosciences) and the Department of Pharmacology (School of Pharmacy).
