First year studies focus on core skills in fundamental topics including cell biology, human physiology, the scientific method and pharmacology. This knowledge base is expanded in the second year, developing your knowledge of physiology, systems pharmacology, cell and molecular biology, and research skills. For your final year, you will study a more applied content, focusing on the central nervous system and immunopharmacology, toxicology and drug development strategies. In addition, you will undertake a research project in a School with an active and enthusiastic approach to fundamental and clinically related research.


Pharmacology and physiology are closely related disciplines. Pharmacology is the study of drug action and how medicines may modify disease states. Physiology is concerned with how the body and its systems are controlled, and in the changes that lead to disease states.

The course will provide you with a sound understanding of the biological action of drugs and other biomolecules at the tissue, cellular and sub-cellular levels, and their use in medicines for the treatment of disease. It provides an ideal grounding for a career in the pharmaceutical industry or other areas of biomedical research, academia, the Scientific Civil Service and hospitals. Opportunities exist for you to enhance your practical and related transferable skills within our research laboratories. Teaching is informed by high-quality research, in relevant cognate areas, within the School of Life Sciences.
