This broad-based science degree will suit students who wish to pursue careers in integrative medical and pharmacological science or are interested in focusing on drug development. It was designed in response to the growing demand for a new breed of scientist who can apply basic science knowledge and skills to speed up the critical task of translating basic laboratory medical research into commercially-ready medical technology and drugs that can be used to diagnose and treat patients. This emerging area of science is known as ‘translational medicine’. We apply pharmacology and physiology to topics including diagnosis, understanding and treatment of disease, classical clinical trial design and health outcomes, supported by our excellent laboratory facilities. Core subject areas include: human biology in health and disease, clinical physiology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenomics, drug development, bioinformatics, numeracy, statistics and computing, and a wide range of instrumentation and analytical techniques.
