Programme Information
Pharmaceutical or Medicinal chemistry is a chemistry-based discipline, involving aspects of biological and pharmaceutical sciences. It is concerned with the discovery, design, development, identification and preparation of biologically active compounds, the study of their metabolism, the interpretation of their mode of action at the molecular level and the construction of structure-activity relationships. Pharmaceutical chemistry may be viewed as the intersection of synthetic chemistry and molecular pharmacology emphasizing on the study of SAR of drug molecules; it therefore requires a clear understanding of both chemical and pharmacological principles.
