Why study Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry at Warwick?
Our BSc Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry degree provides a solid foundation in chemistry coupled with
specialist knowledge in advanced medicinal chemistry/biochemistry. During specialist modules taken in Year 3, you will explore the process of medicinal drug discovery, starting from the initial concept of a new product, to the discovery stage, clinical trials, scale-up and production. You can explore the biochemistry of these processes,
and how this leads to medical breakthroughs. In addition to research-led teaching from top academics in their field, you will benefit from external lectures given by pharmaceutical industry leaders. You will carry out a range of interdisciplinary experiments in your first two years that will prepare you for an experimental project in the area of Medicinal Chemistry during your third year.
