This Summer Course "Pharmaceutical Drugs: how to obtain, how do they work and why (a perspective in Pharmaceutical Medicinal Chemistry)" jointly organized by the Laboratory of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry (LQOF) of FFUP and Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR) will be delivered by Professors of the LQOF addressing topics of great interest for many areas of science.
The course will be targeted at students (Masters, PhD), researchers and technicians who deal with the area of Life Sciences, flanking by disciplines as diverse as Pharmaceutical Sciences, Medicine, Veterinary, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Pharmacology, Biotechnology.
It is intended that the participants acquire basic concepts in Pharmaceutical Medicinal Chemistry based on the principle of the mechanism of action of drugs at a molecular level, as well as to contact with methods and strategies used in discovery, obtaining and design drugs in approach of case studies. Examples will be presented of how several relevant drugs of the current therapeutic arsenal came to the market. Participants will participate in discussion of posters related with the subjects taught in the Course and presented in Congresses for the members of the Staff.
