About the track
The medicinal chemistry track encompasses drug discovery and prepares you with the means to study the behavior of chemical substances at the molecular level.
- You will use computational, biochemical and cell-based screening technologies to identify natural and synthetic compounds with pharmacological activity.
- You will study structure-activity relationships to understand the mechanisms of drug action.
- Your research will be directed towards the identification, synthesis and development of new chemical molecules suitable for biological studies and eventually therapeutic use.
