Course Summary

Our research spans the continuum from basic to applied translational science and clinical practice. We have a diverse research portfolio and a range of research facilities. The excellence of our pharmaceutical science and health related research is recognised internationally.

Substantial research opportunities exist in all of the pharmaceutical sciences and clinical pharmacy, with much of the research being multidisciplinary. Close collaboration between school and industry is a major reason why so many higher graduates eventually pursue successful careers within the pharmaceutical industry. We offer supervision and/or research projects in the following disciplines: Drug Delivery and Microbiology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology and Physiology, Pharmacy Practice and Clinical Pharmacy. Research themes across these disciplines comprise: Experimental therapeutics and pharmaceutical sciences; Drug discovery, design and synthesis; Medicines optimisation and healthcare outcomes.
