Course Description

Course Profile
Medicinal chemistry is a scientific discipline at the intersection of chemistry and computational science involved with designing, synthesizing and developing new pharmaceutical drugs. In the beginning medicinal chemistry was involved in the screening of natural sources like plants or animals. Now the natural compounds serves as the leading compounds in the synthesis and development of new chemical entities suitable for therapeutic use. Medicinal chemistry includes the synthesis and analysis of existing drugs, evaluation of their biological properties, analysis of structure-activity relationships as well as design and synthesis of new drugs or search for their natural sources. It is a highly interdisciplinary discipline widely using advanced, synthetic, spectroscopic and computational methods. Thus medicinal chemists cooperate with theoretical chemists, synthetic chemists, medical doctors, microbiologists, pharmacologists. The graduation document certifies the degree in chemistry with the notification of a deepened specialization in Medicinal Chemistry.
