Pharmacology and Innovative Therapeutics with Year in Industry

Course summary

The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries have identified pharmacology - the study of medicines - as a major skills gap. By taking our Pharmacology and Innovative Therapeutics BSc, you’ll be well placed to meet the shortfall. Led by Queen Mary University of London's Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and co-taught by the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences, this programme brings together the core strengths of both schools. The programme will give you a strong foundation in biomedical science and molecular and clinical pharmacology. Practical sessions in our modern labs will give you hands-on experience of using scientific instruments. You’ll understand the drug development cycle, from initial idea to the patient’s bedside, through studying drug regulation, safety, bioethics, clinical trials, risk/benefit assessments and personalised medicine. You’ll also look at the practical aspects of managing a pharmacology business, including research and development costs, pricing, marketing and licensing.
