Medicinal Chemistry encompasses the entire process of developing new medicines for human use.
This involves isolating medicinal agents from natural sources, designing and synthesising new drugs, and understanding disease causation at a molecular level.
Medicinal chemists design and synthesise new medicinal and pharmacological agents, monitor guidelines for testing drugs and analyse synthesise drug regulatory affairs, assess patent applications for new medications, and teach in tertiary institutions.
The Bachelor of Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) at UOW provides excellent training in the modern techniques of chemical science applied to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic agents.
During the fourth (Honours) year of this degree, you will undertake a substantial piece of independent research in Medicinal Chemistry under the supervision of a leading researcher, together with other coursework.
On completion, you will be ready for a career in the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies (health, agriculture, food and drug administration), or research organisations.
