Research Degrees

Studying for a PhD at the School of Pharmacy is an immensely rewarding experience. Students undertake research projects which lead to a number of discoveries. 


Our students work in four core areas: neuroscience and cardiovascular pharmacology with research into the underlying basis of some challenging human diseases, cancer drug discovery with research into the identification of drug molecules to treat this currently intractable disease, nanotechnology and medicines development with research into concepts that lead to effective medicines with little or no side effects and pharmacy practice and medicines management with research into the influence of human behaviour on medicines use. 

In addition to an advanced hypothesis driven research project yielding top flight publications which change thinking in their chosen fields, students also acquire generic and transferable skills while undertaking their PhD course. For example students graduate with the skills enabling excellent scientific presentation, both written and verbal, time management - an essential skill in today’s busy world and networking skills. Students have ample opportunities to practice the art of networking with their peer group both within the school and outside the school as students often talk about their work within the School and many students travel the world speaking to scientists about their research work.

We look forward to welcoming you to UCL School of Pharmacy.
