From Organic Chemistry to Pharmaceutical Drugs: theory and laboratory

From Organic Chemistry to Pharmaceutical Drugs: theory and laboratory.

If you are a student looking for the BLENDED INTENSIVE PROGRAMME (BIP) you should apply for the course refered at:

This also applies to students who have applied UNDER AN ERASMUS+ BIP SCHOLARSHIP.

The course "From Organic Chemistry to Drugs: theory and laboratory practice", organized by the Laboratory of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry (LQOF) of FFUP, supported by the Interdisciplinary Center for Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR), will be taught by Professors / Researchers of the LQOF.

The main topics covered in this Course are:
- General reactivity of organic compounds;
- Synthesis of drugs;
- Pharmacopeia analysis;
- “ChemBioOffice” software for teaching and learning Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Pharmaceutical Chemistry;
- Pharmaceutical Medicinal Chemistry in discovery, design and development of drugs
- Molecular Recognition in drug mechanism of action;
- Factors affecting the activity of drugs;
- Drug discovery and development.

"Case studies" involving the referred topics will also be presented and discussed with the participants.
It is intended that participants can discuss current topics of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry with professors and researchers of the LQOF. The course also aims to develop skills such as deductive reasoning, rigor, interpretation of experimental data and critical observation.

The course will be taught in Portuguese or in English, if necessary.
