King's College London
School of Biomedical Sciences
Pharmaceutical Science Division
The pharmaceutical sciences are concerned with gaining a detailed understanding of the human pathological state and using this knowledge to discover, design, develop and deliver drugs to the patient with a view to treating or managing disease. Our mission is to advance this interdisciplinary field through research in the areas of cellular biology, pharmacology, molecular biophysics, pharmaceutics, drug delivery, and medicinal chemistry.
We are developing new methodologies to enable accelerated drug discovery, enhanced identification of drug targets for drug development, improved therapeutic agents, and efficient drug delivery systems. In addition, our work in clinical practice and medication use is expanding rapidly, drawing on components of pharmacy practice in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Clinical Academic Group of King’s Health Partners.
