Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

It is intended for students who choose this course acquire basic terminology of pharmaceutical chemistry, enabling him to speak with the precision required in the pharmaceutical field, formulating ideas, concepts and connections between them, and being able to think in scientific terms, relating the Organic Chemistry bases with pharmacological activity which presents certain molecules and their metabolism. The student must acquire the operational capacity to apply and relate chemical laws and principles as well as controlling the procedures for troubleshooting heterocyclic organic synthesis, interpreting results and discussing whether these are reasonable. The student must understand the structure and reactivity of heterocycles and common organic functions which are widely distributed in the structures of the drugs, and the existing relationships between these structures and the molecular mechanisms of interaction with various biological targets, therefore approach the design of new drugs. In this subject the student should acquire the skills needed to manage in a Pharmaceutical Chemistry laboratory, including conducting experimental setups, measurements, results and their interpretation, safely handling laboratory equipment, reagents, instruments and application devices. Finally, it is intended that the student is be able to study and plan their activities, either individually or in groups, by searching, selecting and synthesizing information in various sources.
