Course Description

Course Profile

Medicinal chemistry is a scientific discipline at the intersection of chemistry and computational science, connected with designing, synthesizings and developing new pharmaceuticals. At the beginning, medicinal chemistry was involved in screening of natural sources like plants or animals for bioactive compounds. Now, natural products serve as the lead structures in the synthesis and development of new chemical entities dedicated for therapeutic use. Medicinal chemistry includes preparation and analysis of existing and new potential drugs, evaluation of their biological properties, analysis of structure-activity relationships. It is a highly interdisciplinary field widely using advanced, synthetic, spectroscopic and computational methods. Thus, medicinal chemists cooperate with theoretical chemists, synthetic chemists, medical doctors, microbiologists and pharmacologists. The graduation document certifies the degree in chemistry with the notification of a deepened specialisation in Medicinal Chemistry. The study for applicants without engineering degree lasts 2 years, otherwise 1.5 years only.
