About

MPhil/PhD Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Lincoln

As a researcher in the School of Pharmacy, you have the opportunity to liaise with leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Research in the School is diverse and multidisciplinary and is generally grouped around two distinct strands: 1) pharmacy education and community engagement with prescribing, and 2) physical pharmaceutics and drug development and delivery. Subsequently, there are opportunities for research students to work with academics across varied topics, including solid-state drug development and biologics delivery.
As a postgraduate student, you can benefit from specialist laboratory space and equipment, a wide range of training programmes designed to enhance your research and transferable skills, as well as support from dedicated academic supervisors.

All of our research students are encouraged to submit papers to scientific journals, present their findings at conferences in the UK and overseas, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.
