CHM455: Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action

3 Credit(s)
This course is an overview of the organic chemical principles and reactions vital to the drug discovery, drug design, and drug development processes.  Topics will include:  pharmacophore identification, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, structure-activity relationships (SAR), combinatorial chemistry, drug-receptor interactions, enzymes as catalysts, drug resistance and synergism, and the use of computers in drug design.  Case studies will be used to illustrate the rational discovery of drugs.
Prerequisite(s): CHM206  and BCH403  strongly recommended
