Kingston University welcomes your students to a practical introduction to studying pharmacy and chemistry at university.

Students will be helping to solve the intriguing case of the death of Henry Hobbit at our very own scene of crime house, inspecting the crime scene and collecting the vital evidence needed to solve the crime. They will investigate the background of Henry's diabetes and get an insight into the important role of the pharmacist in managing chronic diseases and research within the pharmaceutical industry to develop more effective drugs.

This will be followed by a session in our instrumentation laboratories, finding out how the latest analytical techniques such as spectroscopy, IR and NMR can be used to analyse samples from the crime scene and solve the case.
