Undertake taught modules and an extended research project in a professional lab.
Explore the fundamental principles of molecular pharmacology and biotechnology.
Enhance your laboratory skills from experimental design through to interpretation of results.
Learn how to synthesise new drugs, or produce them from genetically modified microorganism.
Develop as an autonomous learner capable of reflecting on learning, knowledge and professional practices.
This course has been designed to respond to the increasing need for professional pharmacologists and biotechnologists. You’ll learn to translate laboratory medical research into clinical applications, and study topics such as diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of disease. Throughout, you'll learn to apply medical biotechnology, biopharmaceutics and drugs.
How you learn
You are taught through various learning activities designed to challenge and support as you progress through the course. The aim is to give a theoretical and practical knowledge of your subject.
In the first semester you will follow taught modules that provide a fundamental knowledge of biotechnology and pharmacology, and the module Applied Laboratory Practice will introduce you to the practical and theoretical basis of research. Together these will give you a sound basis to carry out your Extended Research Project in semesters two and three.
