    Course Description

    Overview

    If you want to further your research in Pharmacy, Pharmacology and Biomedical Sciences, Portsmouth is the ideal place to continue your journey. Among the University Alliance group of 25 universities, we're in the top 3 for research in the subject of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy (REF 2014).

    Our Pharmacy, Pharmacology and Biomedical Sciences research focuses on growing our understanding of how the body functions in health, how it malfunctions in disease, and the genetic and molecular drivers of physical and mental illnesses.

    We're researching the molecular, cellular, physiological and behavioural processes occurring in the body at times of health and disease. We're identifying and characterising the biomarkers of disease, and helping develop new drugs from initial discovery to clinical application with our partners in industry.

    Much of our research takes place at the Institute of Biological and Biomedical Sciences (IBBS) where the majority of our research was rated world-leading or internationally as excellent in REF 2014. Some of our successful projects at IBBS include researching microporous materials for environmental and drug delivery, sperm freezing to reduce the use of animals in research, and developing endoscopy methods and training to improve patient outcomes.

    As a postgraduate research degree student, you'll join our collaborative research community, help find new, more effective treatments for patients, and play your part in turning knowledge into impact.
