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. PhD projects typically fall within the remit of one or more Research Clusters including:

  • Behavioural medicine and treatment optimisation
  • Biodiversity and medicines
  • Disease models and clinical pharmacology
  • Drug discovery
  • Global workforce and education
  • Medication use, systems and practice
  • Molecular drug delivery and nanomedicine
  • Neuroscience in health and disease
  • Pharmaceutical materials and dosage form design

The School also hosts an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Therapeutics and Nanomedicines, a partnership between Schools of Pharmacy at UCL and the University of Nottingham, together with industrial partners (including Alliance Boots, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer).
