The Bachelor of Medicinal Chemistry is a practice-oriented degree that involves cutting-edge instrumentation, equipping students with the necessary skills for a career as a medicinal chemist.
This course equips graduates with skills to undertake the design, discovery and development of new drugs. The course is a research-inspired, transdisciplinary degree located at the intersection of chemistry, biology and pharmacology. Students develop a solid foundation in chemistry, mathematics and biology in their first year of study underpinning future studies. These topics are expanded further covering pharmacology and drug synthesis strategies in the latter years of study.
