Medicinal and Biological Chemistry

Medicinal and biological chemistry is the foundation of modern medicine. The life sciences industry is one of the largest industrial sectors in the UK, where you could use your skills to have a positive effect on health and wellbeing worldwide. This is a truly multidisciplinary science. While chemistry forms the core of the BSc (Hons) Medicinal and Biological Chemistry degree, you’ll also study biology, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology to understand the links between human disease and its prevention and treatment through drug design. To prepare you for the workplace there’s a significant amount of simulated work-based learning as part of this specialist Chemistry course, as well as employability and professional development activities. In your final year, for example, you can complete a major project in the workplace or pursue an industry-linked project.
