MCH 502: Principles of Medicinal Chemistry II

MCH 502 is a continuation of MCH 501. Drug metabolism, prodrugs and drug delivery systems are discussed in detail. In addition, prototypes of selected drug classes are discussed with a focus on the molecular mechanisms of action of representative drugs. Drug-target interactions at the molecular level are examined. In this course, the medicinal chemistry topics are integrated with relevant topics in biochemistry, physiology, pharmaceutics, and structural biology.
