Research within the School of Pharmacy

Pharm Research Banner


The School of Pharmacy has five academic disciplines:

  •     Pharmaceutical Chemistry
  •     Physical Pharmacy and Drug Delivery
  •     Pharmacology and Clinical Therapeutics
  •     Pharmacy Practice
  •     Biological Chemistry

Research in these areas has the common theme of medicines optimisation, whether that is by drug discovery, synthesis, formulation, pharmacological evaluation or safe and effective use. There will be an opportunity for students to develop the research skills within the different disciplines and conduct a specific lab-based or practice-based research project.

The School of Pharmacy are involved in a wide range of different research centres and groups. There is a strong presence in LiH (Lincoln institute of Health). However, their work is not confined between these groups and can be found within a lot of inter-disciplinary work at the University. You are more than welcome to contact any member of the School staff to find out more. See below for details on the staff and their specialisms, as well as their contact information.
