Interested in studying biological based science but unsure of what it will be like, what course to choose and how it links to a career?
At this taster session we will show how laboratory-based teaching can be illuminated by research with hands on experiments. You have the chance to study some simple biochemical and chemical processes such as how an essential human enzyme works for removing dangerous chemicals, linked to cellular ageing and neurodegeneration and learn how much bacterially produced and naturally occurring polymers are better for us than their chemically produced counterparts.
Ever wondered how medication for diabetes or heart conditions work? Are you interested in how drugs are first discovered and how they become medicines? If so, you may be interested in studying Pharmacology at Westminster.
Pharmacology deals with how individual drug molecules interact with other molecules in our cells, right through to the ultimate therapeutic outcome for the patient and all stops in between. Pharmacologists are involved in many aspects of the drug discovery and their development process, together with identifying undesirable effects and regulating the use of drugs.
At this session you can try a lab session with our synthetic human being, administer drugs and see what happens to the body.
This session is open to Year 12 and 13 Sixth Form students or Level 3 at FE College students only. There are 80 places available.
Registration begins at 1.45pm
