Students work independently on a research topic in pharmaceutically-related chemistry, set by their project supervisors. Original experimental or theoretical work is the principal component of this advanced project. The work also involves critical evaluation of previously published results. A dissertation is prepared describing the research work undertaken, and placing it in the context of other research in the field. The dissertation is defended in an oral examination; students also present their work in the form of a poster and as a short oral presentation.
