About this course

How do we develop the next generation of drugs for treating bacterial infection, AIDS, cancer, depression and heart failure? These are among the challenges being addressed by pharmacologists at Southampton. This degree will prepare you to make your own contribution to this important work. 

Your studies will give you an in-depth understanding of the major pharmacological concepts and principles.

These include:

  • the discovery and production of new drugs

  • the interaction of drugs with humans and animals

In the first and second years, you'll have the opportunity to refine your practical skills in our state-of-the-art teaching labs. This will prepare you to work alongside our experts in pharmacology and undertake your individual research project in year 3.
