Completion of the Human Genome Project means that it is now possible to identify the genes associated with many cancers and inherited disorders – this presents many challenges and opportunities to make a difference in society. At the University of Salford, we are training a new generation of pharmaceutical scientists to meet these new challenges and to apply scientific knowledge in order to design drugs that improve the quality of people’s lives. Pharmaceutical science is at the cutting-edge of research, with opportunities in the field continuing to grow and develop. This course is designed for students looking for a career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. It also provides a platform for research, teaching, and many other professions wherein biology and biochemistry are important components, such as animal health, food science, cosmetic science, in medical laboratories, technical sales, patent law and scientific journalism. Features • Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology • Industry work experience opportunities in local hospitals, research labs, or with major companies, such as AstraZeneca • Complete your degree with a supervised research project exploring an inspiring area of research: for example, cancer and antimicrobial research, natural products, lung diseases and biotechnology

At Salford, we are training a new generation of pharmaceutical scientists to meet these new challenges and to apply scientific knowledge in order to design drugs to improve the quality of people's lives. Year 1 introduces the basic concepts of pharmaceutical science and includes both theoretical and practical modules. Year 2 builds on Year 1, increasing in depth and specialisation. In year 3 you will take three core modules and one optional module and complete your degree with a supervised research project in a subject of your choice.
