Students working in our high-spec labsPharmacology involves the study of how biologically active components (drugs) act upon the body and vice-versa.

An understanding of drugs and their actions allows us to use them safely and effectively. It is thanks to pharmacologists that you can take an aspirin when you get a headache or have an anaesthetic when the dentist gives you a filling.

Our degree focuses on the way drugs exert their therapeutic effect in humans by modifying disease processes, as well as the mechanisms of toxicity associated with their use.

It provides you with an in-depth knowledge of a wide range of drug classes as well a sound understanding of the drug development process.

You will also gain training in techniques and in vivo skills which are in demand in postgraduate research and the pharmaceutical industry.
