Pharmacology

You’ll learn about the way molecules act on receptors to produce particular effects in the body, and use this information to understand how compounds can be used to treat disease. You’ll look at examples such as the way antipsychotic drugs are used to treat schizophrenia and the types of drugs used to treat high blood pressure. You’ll also study drug development and screening, as well as how to best analyse pharmacological data. You’ll learn through a combination of lectures and tutorials, online facilities and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art £30 million Science Centre. You’ll complete an independent research project in your final year and also have the option to undertake a work placement in the industry to gain real, hands-on experience and boost your CV. Pharmacologists are in high demand and there are opportunities to work in a wide variety of areas such as drug development, clinical trials and toxicity studies. Our previous graduates have gone on to find employment with companies such as Parexel.
