During the Biochemistry and Medicinal Chemistry (Hons) programme from Keele University , articular emphasis is placed on human and mammalian biochemistry, especially relating to health and disease. You can create a four year degree by doing a work and industrial placement between the second and third year.
This combined honours degree includes Medicinal Chemistry, where you’ll develop deep understanding of the complex chemical and biological processes involved in the design and manufacture of drugs and other therapies for treating disease. This course prepares you to help solve problems at the intersection of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmacology. The goal of medicinal chemistry is to support the search for new drugs to treat conditions such as heart disease and cancer. You’ll work in well-equipped laboratories, and learn to conduct effective independent research. Keele also offers support to find an industrial or resear
96% of Keele graduates were in a job or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE,)
When you graduate, the broad and detailed understanding of biochemistry you’ll have developed at Keele will open up a world of appealing career options. You could choose to work in a directly related field, perhaps as a clinical biochemist, medical bio scientist, forensic scientist, research scientist, toxicologist or science teacher. Or you might branch out a little further, and become a health and safety inspector, training standards officer, science writer or technical author.
Our Medicinal Chemistry graduates have excellent employment prospects, whether at the cutting edge of drug discovery or in a wide range of related fields. You might go to work for a pharmaceutical company, either as a research scientist or in a more business related role.
