EXPERIMENTALPHARMACOLOGY ANDTHERAPEUTICS MSc /2018/19 ENTRY
Experimental Pharmacology and TherapeuticsMSc /
This programme teaches advanced experimentalapproaches to dissecting the mechanisms of drugaction (pharmacology), a science that has seeninnovative theoretical and technical development atUCL for over a century.
In addition to providing experience of both classical and modernpharmacological techniques, the programme will help develop skills forliterature search-based data acquisition and analysis; written and verbalcommunication of science; abstract writing; poster preparation;graphical processing; image preparation for publication; writing ascientific paper; and giving research presentations.
// The programme is jointly taught by UCL Neuroscience, Physiology &Pharmacology (Division of Biosciences), and the ResearchDepartment of Pharmacology at the UCL School of Pharmacy. Bothdepartments are historically and currently internationally leading inthis field, and together provide cutting-edge education in theory,research practice and innovation in pharmacology.
// The programme is designed to impart extensive experimentalexpertise applied to drug development and subsequenttherapeutics. The combination of traditional and experimentalapproaches in pharmacology, coupled with current innovation intherapeutics and drug discovery and development, fosters a uniqueset of skills, which will enable graduates of the programme toengage in various aspects of pharmaceutical research globally.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, journalclubs, practicals, tutorials and a laboratory project. Student performanceis evaluated through formal examination, coursework, and the researchproject.
Mode: Full-time: 1 year
Location: London, Bloomsbury
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programmeconsists of three core modules (75 credits), one optional module (15credits), and a research project (90 credits).
// Investigative Pharmacology
// Molecular Pharmacology
// Practice of Science
// Students choose one of the following:
// Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics
// Drug Design and Development
// Pharmacology of Inflammation
// Receptor Mechanisms
// Synaptic Pharmacology
// Translational Neuroscience and Therapeutics
// Students undertake an original research project which culminates in a 15,000-worddissertation and an oral presentation.
This programme is likely to lead to careers in biomedical sciences, thepharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and clinical laboratories,and extend to clinicians interested in moving towards a scientific career.Students will obtain a thorough knowledge of and practice inpharmacological assessment, drug design and development pathways.It is anticipated that graduates will move onto PhD programmes and/orbuild careers in industry or clinical investigations through employment asresearch associates/scientists in the pharmaceutical industry oracademia.
The knowledge and transferable skills developed on this programme willbe advantageous for those considering employment in anypharmaceutical or healthcare setting, or contemplating further studies inrelated fields. The programme will also provide excellent training incritical appraisal of complex data, which will transfer well to otherdisciplines.
Normally a minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degreefrom a UK university, in life sciences, pharmaceutics, biotechnology orpharmacy, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.Professional or other qualifications obtained by written examinations andapproved by UCL, together with at least three years of appropriateprofessional experience, will also be considered.
