This joint Honours degree course combines the study of biochemistry with pharmacology.
Biochemistry is the study of the composition, metabolism and function of biological systems at molecular level. Biochemistry, and the related field of molecular biology, provide important advances in understanding the molecular basis of life and its role in the disease process.
Pharmacology is the study of how drugs and other chemicals affect the body in health and disease. This area explores the development of new and improved medicines and the treatment of disease.
The opportunity to choose specific degree combinations will allow you to go into specialist biomedical science areas such as neuroscience, cardiovascular research, immunopharmacology, industrial immunology, drug research, biochemistry, microbiology and bacteriology.
