Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry University of Tsukuba
The aim of this course is to acquire the basic knowledge of organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology, and pharmacology, and its application for development of new drug. The course will provide basic topics of organic chemistry, which involve chemical structure, functional group, reaction, molecular design, synthesis, and molecular recognition. In addition, compound screening, target identification, and interaction between ligand and receptor will be lectured. The course will explain mode of action, in vitro/in vivo pharmacology, effect of drug on biological function in living body, and then introduce practical examples of drug discovery.
Acquiring the basic skill and knowledge of medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, chemical biology, and pharmacology, and applying it to one’s own research.
