Overview

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
