WHY STUDY CHEMISTRY?
With a growing need for more scientists with a chemical and molecular perspective to contribute to the future of healthcare sciences, our undergraduate Chemistry programme is designed to train the next generation of chemists interested in applying their science in biomedicine and healthcare research and develeopment, in industry, academia or the health services. The programme is also an excellent platform for those considering postgraduate entry into Chemistry or Medicine.
Our MSci Chemistry with Biomedicine programme is only one of its kind in the UK. It combines the teaching of the fundamental principles, methods and techniques of chemistry with cutting edge applications of chemistry in biomedicine and biology.
WHY STUDY CHEMISTRY AT KING'S?
Chemistry has been taught at King's since the founding of the College in 1831, when John Federic Daniell was appointed the first Professor of Chemistry. Daniell invented the first electrochemical cell, laying down the foundations of the study of electrochemistry and hence influencing the study of physical chemistry.
Chemistry is already embedded in a range of multidisciplinary activities throughout the College, for exaple imaging and material science, molecular and cellular biophysics, pharmaceutical and forsenic science.
