MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY A

CHE2MCA

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Students will be introduced to new chemical principles that are required to understand the action and behaviour of drug compounds. The main areas of study include an introduction to the chemistry and nomenclature of carbohydrates, lipids, steroids and heterocyclic compounds. This unit will provide an understanding of how the chemical structure and behaviour of drug molecules relate to the activity of drugs in biological systems, and how this knowledge can be used to devise strategies for drug design and principles of drug structure-activity relationships (SAR and QSAR), drug-receptor interactions. This unit will also contain a computer based practical component.
