Learning outcomes:
Rational design is applied in the discovery of novel lead drugs. Its rapid development is mainly attributed to the tremendous advancements in computer science, statistics, molecular biology, biophysics, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics experienced in the last few decades. The promising feature that characterizes the application of rational drug design is that it uses for developing potential leads in drug discovery all known theoretical and experimental knowledge of the system under study. This introductory course on Rational Drug Design, Discovery and Synthesis aims to provide the undergraduate students majored in Medicinal Chemistry and Material Sciences the fundamental knowledge on the process of drug design, the highly interaction with molecular-based on the receptor active site or homology model of a receptor (enzyme, protein, i.e,…) and their applications.
Prospective students:
  • Bachelor’s degree students in Medicinal Chemistry
  • Engineering students in Material Sciences
  • Interested students (undergraduate, graduate) from other related fields
Previous knowledge: Biochemistry; Organic chemistry; Material science; Pharmacology; Bioinformatics
