This MSc explores the exciting science at the boundary between biology and chemistry and the ways in which the challenges of the worldwide pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are being addressed. It aims to develop research, synthetic and analytical skills for careers in the global pharmaceutical industry or further research leading to a PhD.
You will study how preparative biological chemistry relates to the pharmaceutical industry and drug discovery programmes, including the principals of combinatorial synthesis. You will learn techniques that will enable you to propose a synthetic plan for any molecule, alongside the theory and application of modern spectroscopic and analytical procedures to the characterisation of molecules in chemical research. You will also study the principal types of enzymic catalysis, including methods for probing the structure and function of biomacromeolecules.
