This dual degree challenges those with curious minds who want to engage in or support cutting edge scientific research and developments.
Medicinal Chemistry is an exciting, rapidly-expanding area within the broad discipline of Chemistry that has seen enormous growth recently both within Australia and globally. It includes the development of new pharmaceutical agents, from Concept to Clinic.
