The course is providing a comprehensive overview of the developments in pharmaceutical research from historically relevant examples to modern medicinal chemistry and 'biologicals'. The lecture will include in-depth discussions of important aspects such as modes of drug-target interactions, transport and metabolism, structure-activity relationship, and lead optimization and rational design. The course is complemented with general considerations regarding the development of pharmaceuticals and drug-to-market processes.
All slides can be found prior to the lecture day in the materials section.
