Description

After a general introduction of “classical” and “modern” drug discovery, various receptors, enzymes, ion-channels, carbohydrates and nucleotides are presented which provide clues as to how novel drugs can be found. It will be demonstrated that the multidisciplinary interaction between molecular biology, pharmacology, biophysics and chemistry is of utmost importance in the drug discovery process. The course is intended for MSc and PhD students.
