Learning outcomes

Medicinal chemistry is a discipline at the intersection of synthetic organic chemistry and pharmacology having a shared goal: design and synthesis of bio-active molecules and further development of the best candidates to compounds that fulfill all the rigorous demands put to pharmaceutical agents. The lecture course tends to offer an introduction to this extensive field. In addition to conventional drug discovery of small organic molecules targeted towards soluble or membrane-bound proteins, the potential of structurally modified polypeptides, oligonucleotides and carbohydrates is discussed.


Proteins and nucleic acids as drug targets, pharmacokinetics, tools for the lead discovery, structure optimization of the lead, antibacterial, antiviral agents and anticancer drugs, selected examples of other drug targets, biopolymer-based drugs, pro-drug strategies.
