Pharmacology is an exciting branch of experimental science concerned with drugs and how they work in the fight against disease. Taught by leading academics who are active researchers in their fields in a rich and vibrant environment, you will study the physiological and biochemical processes underlying diseases such as AIDS, malaria, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular and neurological disease, and learn how drug molecules can be designed to relieve symptoms and combat the disease process. This course provides an advanced programme using different forms of teaching, including lecture-based study of classical pharmacology, physiology, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular toxicology, cancer pharmacology, and many others. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
