Advanced Medicinal Chemistry - CBMS842

This unit builds on the fundamentals of medicinal chemistry, including the discovery, design and development of new medicines. The aim of the unit is to integrate chemical biology and organic chemistry to reveal how these are used in medicinal chemistry to design and synthesise new drugs and to understand their mode of action. The unique aspect of this unit is the focus on computational chemistry in the field of drug design and development. This includes aspects of molecular modelling, molecular dynamics, docking, pharmacophore modelling and QSAR as they relate to the understanding of drug action and design of new drugs.
