Learning and assessment
This programme is designed to provide you with a ‘state of the art’ education in modern cancer drug discovery, which meets the demand of employers in pharmaceutical industry and has a strong track record in graduates progressing to employment in the field or PhD study.
There are opportunities to learn the latest innovations in drug discovery, including computer-aided drug design and techniques, drug synthesis as well as electronic data management.
