You’ll be introduced to a range of drug therapy topics, including heart disease, infectious diseases (including bacterial and viral), cancer, and neuropharmacology. You will also have the opportunity to undertake independent research, culminating in the production of a literature review which is excellent preparation for the MSc project module (S810).
What you will study
This subject is of fundamental importance in medical therapy, because it enables potential drug intervention strategies to be identified and the drugs to be designed. Such drugs, designed to help the body to cope with transient or chronic disease, can both enhance quality of life and increase longevity.
The Molecules in Medicine programme offered by The Open University is designed to enable you to develop a broad and balanced appreciation of these areas of contemporary medicine, rather than a detailed ‘professional’ knowledge. You will study two introductory topics which give a broad overview of the key scientific concepts and then study four topics (heart disease, infectious diseases – both bacterial and viral, cancer and neuropharmacology) in more detail.
