Pharmacokinetics is a key aspect of drug safety. It investigates the fate of a drug in the body and examines how the substance is absorbed, distributed, metabolised and eliminated. It is a field of Drug Delivery and is therefore crucial to the success of drugs in medicine.
Our MSc Pharmacokinetics course has been designed to enhance your skills and knowledge in the application of pharmacokinetics to the design and optimisation of new therapeutics. We put an emphasis on describing mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting the pharmacokinetics of drugs throughout the drug development process.
The modules you will study will build your research methods and critical thinking skills for application both within and outside of academia. Our broad range of topics such as drug discovery, drug dosage form and design and chemotherapy and selective toxicity will ensure you possess the necessary skill set for a pharmaceutical scientist. You’ll encounter a broad range of experiences in the application of pharmacokinetics from early discovery and development, through to market authorisation and clinical applications.
In addition to this subject specific knowledge, you will also develop highly desirable transferable skills in presenting, team working, report writing, critical analysis, negotiating and data analysis.
Upon successful completion of our course, you’ll be prepared for various careers in the pharmaceutical industry such as analytical sciences, formulation development, project management, regulatory affairs, scientific writing and further studies.
