Pharmacology - University of Southampton

Pharmacology is the science of how drugs work. This programme examines molecular aspects of how drugs can be used to treat disease in humans and animals as scientists seek an improved quality of life for all. Recent advances in this area have resulted in better treatments for AIDS, depression, heart failure and malaria. This flexible programme, allows you to combine interests in biochemistry, physiology, neuroscience, cell biology, genetics, microbiology and pharmacology. The emphasis is on the science that underpins and advances clinical practice, rather than the technical basis of routine laboratory tests. You will study human disease at all levels, from genetic mutations through organ degeneration, such as the brain in Alzheimer’s disease, up to whole body metabolic disorders like diabetes. In year four, you will complete an extensive laboratory-based research project in the heart of our state-of-the-art Life Sciences building or with the research groups based at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust You will learn the major concepts and principles of pharmacology in years one and two through core topics, before completing a research project of your own in your third year. Our teaching staff are actively involved in pharmacological research in areas such as nerve damage and recovery, developmental biology, oncology and the development of new antibiotics which will feed into your learning. You will have the opportunity to spend a year out of university putting your skills to use in the pharmaceutical industry. A Pharmacology degree will equip you for careers in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, scientific officer roles, teaching, forensic medicine and managerial roles in business. There is also the opportunity to go on to study for a higher degree such as an MSc or PhD.
