PHM 809 - Drug Discovery and Medicinal Chemistry

Description

Drug Discovery is a complicated and fascinating adventure, engaging multiple
disciplines, strategic decision-making and problem-solving skills. The selection of a
finalist from a pool of drug candidates is often driven by a careful balance of efficacy,
safety and economic considerations. Expert practitioners have a knowledge in
chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology and physiology to make key
decisions.
In this course, we will cover the fundamentals for the drug discovery process
including but not limited to basic chemical knowledge, drug design principles, high-throughput
screening, computational modeling and drug metabolic pathway. The goal of
this course is to equip students with the knowledge of discovery pharmaceutical
research and to prepare them ultimately to work as a team-member in a discovery
program.
