The aims are:

  • to raise students’ interest & enthusiasm for the field of medicinal chemistry & drug discovery.
  • to give an introduction of the most important concepts and methods used in rational drug design and their application in drug discovery in relation to (molecular) pharmacology, toxicology and structural biology.
  • to give the student sufficient background to interpret structure-activity relationships and fundamental principles governing the molecular interactions of a drug with its target.
  • to introduce the latest developments and insights in the field of medicinal chemistry & drug discovery.
  • to allow students to solve problems that are rooted the biological domain with chemical tools, which are found and optimized through a medicinal chemistry approach.
