Program Overview

Our Medicinal Chemistry and Neuroscience BSc offers you the fantastic opportunity to study two exciting subjects and develop a breadth of skills and knowledge.

From understanding how pharmaceuticals interact with the human body to exploring drug design to combat various diseases, the application of medicinal chemistry plays a vital part in prolonging and improving life. The medicinal chemistry element of the course provide you with a strong grounding in core medicinal chemistry knowledge in areas such as the principles of drug design. This focusses on understanding the interaction of small molecules with biological targets in the body and applying this to the design of drug molecules. During practical sessions you will learn advanced experimental techniques including handling air-sensitive reagents, and also complete a multi-step synthesis of nalidixic acid (the heterocyclic core of a new class of antibacterial agents) to mimic the processes used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Neuroscience is a vibrant and constantly evolving discipline that explores the brain, from how it enables us to sense and move through our environment, to degeneration in health and in disease. With over 600 types of neurological conditions currently identified (NHS England), understanding how the brain and nervous system work is integral to the future of human health and well-being. Modules in the neuroscience component of the programme will equip you with the multidisciplinary skills and knowledge used by Neuroscientists (typically research scientists) in their quest to design and carry out experiments to understand more about the brain and nervous system.
