CHEM 564 - Medicinal Organic Chemistry


Description:
An overview of the drug design and discovery process. A multi-component study of drugs and other biologically potent compounds in terms of chemical synthesis, chemical properties, biochemical evaluation, and substrate-enzyme interaction.

Prerequisites:
Prerequisites: CHEM 363 and CHEM 431 or equivalent or permission of the instructor.

Credits:
(3)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Explain the role of medicinal chemistry and apply the principles learned in chemistry and biology to the Explain the role of medicinal chemistry and apply the principles learned in chemistry and biology to the understanding of the drug discovery process.
  • Discuss the three-dimensional properties and structural characteristics of organic molecules in drug design and enzyme inhibition.
  • Determine how individual targets (e.g. enzymes and/or receptors) are identified as good targets, and how that information is translated into chemical lead structures.
  • Determine the chemical synthesis of biologically active structures.
