CHM 38500 Medicinal Chemistry

The study of medicinal chemistry focuses on the design of new drugs. In order to design an effective therapeutic agent, the target must be defined and studied and a lead molecule must be selected then optimized for safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics. All of those steps will be examined in this course using current therapeutics and their discovery as case studies.
