Course summary

This MRes programme is a one-year stand-alone course that will develop your expertise in multidisciplinary drug discovery research. It will also provide a deep understanding of the current global state of drug discovery together with radical insights into future directions from leaders in the field. You will graduate from the course with a solid knowledge of the drug discovery process, from emerging technologies and drug target selection through to clinical trials and regulatory aspects. You will also be challenged to develop your own ideas on how to focus academic and industrial research to meet the pressing challenges of drug discovery. At its conclusion, you are expected to be ideally placed to apply your knowledge in industry or to undertake doctoral studies in multidisciplinary drug discovery.

The course consists of a nine-month interdisciplinary research project, and a taught component on drug discovery science, including lectures, research seminars and group discussion sessions. You also attend Journal Club, which is an assessed transferable skills module that aims to develop presentation skills, whilst encouraging scientific debate and providing the opportunity to broaden scientific knowledge. At each Journal Club meeting you will work in a group and make a presentation about a seminal high impact paper. This will be followed by a chaired discussion/debate about the paper. You will be assessed on your ability to organise the presentation in a logical manner, the use of clear PowerPoint slides, the clarity of the presentation and its scientific content.
