Sometimes our bodies need a helping hand. Make a real contribution to drug development with a degree in medicinal chemistry.
Graduates are equipped with a unique and wide harmony of skills, from fundamental chemistry through to relevant pharmacology and molecular biology skills. This puts graduates in high demand in local and global pharmaceutical companies involved in modern drug design. In addition, the multidisciplinary nature of the program means that graduates will also be highly marketable within other science-based industries and related fields.
Honours: In their final year of study, Medicinal Chemistry students apply their knowledge to a research project, supervised by a UNSW researcher. Students select from a wide range of medicinal chemistry research projects that emphasise the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of the program, and complete the year by producing a thesis on their research. This also enables students to progress seamlessly into a higher degree if they wish.
Assumed & recommended knowledge
A good standing in Mathematics and Chemistry is highly recommended. A background in Biology may also prove useful.
