University of Central Lancashire has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
On this degree you will study how the normal human body is affected by disease and then learn in detail how drugs affect normal function and try to restore normal function in many pathological conditions. You will explore where drugs come from and how they are developed, with extensive hands-on experience discovering how drugs interact with and affect molecules, cells and whole organisms.
If you have an interest in how medicines work and want to learn more about how they are used now and what new drugs will do in the future, then this is the ideal course for you.
