Course Summary

Pharmacology is the science of how drugs work. Evaluating new generation antibiotics, solving the problems of drug toxicity, finding out how drugs can best be used in the treatment of disease in humans and animals – these are all challenges faced by pharmacologists in an age of higher demands for an improved quality of life. Our pharmacology degree programme has a strong emphasis on the molecular aspects of how pharmacological agents work, with particular interests in neuroscience and neuropharmacology. Through core topics, students will be introduced to the major concepts and principles of pharmacology in years one and two, and in year three they will complete a research project in their area of choice. BSc Pharmacology students who want to gain more experience also have the opportunity to take a year out working in the pharmaceutical industry. As a leading pharmacology university our teaching staffs are actively involved in pharmacological research into brain damage and recovery, developmental biology, oncology, the development of new antibiotics and the mechanisms underlying alcoholism.
