**Course Start Date: 17th September 2018**
Lincoln's Chemistry for Drug Discovery and Development degree aims to give students the skills to join the fight against disease by learning how to create better and safer drugs for society. The course is designed to develop skills in the design and development of active molecules, all the way through to the final pharmaceutical products available to patients. Students can develop experience of synthetic chemistry and gain experience in drug formulation and manufacture within the regulatory context of the pharmaceutical industry. This will involve substantial practical experience of advanced laboratory techniques.
Students will be given the opportunity to develop knowledge in core chemistry areas, while specialising in Drug Discovery and Development. There is an integrated approach to organic, inorganic and physical chemistry which focuses on how these different areas work together. Students will be given the chance to gain hands-on experience of analytical equipment through industry challenges, workshops and practical classes. Throughout the programme, students will be presented with opportunities to engage with industry professionals to develop professional practice that can enhance employability. Challenges based on industry-led, interdisciplinary projects are expected to be undertaken all the way through the degree with both national and international companies. Modules can include the core chemistry modules alongside the specialist drug discovery and development subjects such as drug design and delivery, pharmacology and toxicology, pharmaceutical science and regulations, as well as quality and ethics for the pharmaceutical scientist.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
Application deadline details:
Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
