Discovering Science: Medicinal Chemistry (FutureLearn)
What role does chemistry play in healthcare and our ability to diagnose and treat patients? Discover how chemotherapy has evolved, and some of the breakthroughs and developments chemists have made in the fight against cancer over the last 10 years. Diagnostic imaging examines how scientists learn about, and treat, the inside of the body without invasive surgery. You’ll explore how modern imaging techniques diagnose problems quickly and safely, and how diseases which may not previously have been picked up are identified.
