Pharmaceutical Science - P3701
Bachelor degree (honours year)
Study and work with Australia's largest group of pharmaceutical researchers at the country's leading pharmacy and pharmacology institution with this research degree that includes an honours year.
Our researchers at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences have made ground-breaking contributions to the development of treatments for superbugs, flu, malaria, postpartum hemorrhage and other conditions.
As a graduate, you could join the likes of Dr Brendan Johnson, principal clinical pharmacokineticist at GlaxoSmithKline, USA, who helped create a new drug to prevent the nausea and vomiting that's associated with chemotherapy.
You can choose a research project in one of our research themes of:
- drug discovery biology
- medicinal chemistry
- drug candidate optimization
- drug delivery, disposition and dynamics
- medicine use and safety.
You'll have access to the latest equipment and facilities at our recently redeveloped campus in the inner-Melbourne suburb of Parkville.
You'll develop skills in research planning, experimental techniques, data analysis and scientific writing, and gain the confidence to continue your higher degree studies and help develop breakthrough medicines or improve medicine use and safety.
This degree will open up exciting opportunities in research and development centres, the pharmaceutical industry and food, agriculture, chemicals, biotechnology and cosmetics companies.
You could work as a medicine researcher and developer, drug analyst, formulation scientist, industry consultant, development chemist, medicinal chemist, patent attorney, academic or clinical-trial specialist.
