Independent research can be a life changing experience. In this unit you will extend your undergraduate training in medicinal chemistry by undertaking a research project in an area of medicinal chemistry that interests you under the guidance and mentorship of a supervisor. Together with your supervisor, you will identify a novel research question and develop hypotheses. You will then design and carry out experiments to test your hypotheses. You will communicate the research plan and findings through written tasks and oral presentations culminating in an Honours thesis. Successful completion of your Honours will clearly demonstrate that you have mastered significant research and professional skills for undertaking a PhD or for a variety of future careers.
