Course summary

As a Medicines Optimisation PhD student at the University of Brighton, you will be a member of our specialist Medicines Optimisation Research and Enterprise Group.

We supervise students across medical and pharmaceutical research into medicinal provision and research into the education and support for medicine use.

Programme overview

We conduct research within the broad areas of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry. We are open to enquiries relating to any of these wider fields, but also have particular strengths in research in the fields of biomaterials, chemistry, chronic disease, ecology and conservation, paediatrics, sensory neuroscience, microbiology, biochemistry, regenerative medicine, ageing, diabetes, drug delivery, drug stability, and cancer. Our diverse research provides an excellent environment to tackle global problems using multidisciplinary research approaches. A thriving postgraduate community of over 30 PhD students is supervised by subject specialists from across the life and physical sciences. Research is supported by postdoctoral researchers, visiting fellows and technical staff.

Academic environment

Research within the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences incorporates the biological, biomedical, chemical and pharmaceutical sciences co-located in the Cockcroft and Huxley Buildings. This allows experts in numerous fields of research to collaborate on projects both within their disciplines and in truly cross-disciplinary research.

Consequently, research projects can encompass the use of electrochemistry in biomedical research, bacterial responses to biomaterials, genomic analysis of gut microflora through to computational modelling of drug delivery systems and carbon capture by inorganic complexes.
