Description: 

Field of study: Chemistry

Specialization: Medicinal Chemistry

Medicinal chemistry is a scientific discipline at the intersection of chemistry and computational science, connected with designing, synthesizing and developing new pharmaceuticals. At the beginning, medicinal chemistry was involved in screening of natural sources like plants or animals for bioactive compounds. Now, natural products serve as the lead structures in the synthesis and development of new chemical entities dedicated for therapeutic use. Medicinal chemistry includes preparation and analysis of existing and new potential drugs, evaluation of their biological properties, analysis of structure activity relationships. It is a highly interdisciplinary discipline widely using advanced, synthetic, spectroscopic and computational methods. Thus, medicinal chemists cooperate with theoretical chemists, synthetic chemists, medical doctors, microbiologists and pharmacologists. The graduation document certifies the degree in chemistry with the notification of a deepened specialization in Medicinal Chemistry. The study for applicants without engineering degree lasts 2 years, otherwise 1.5 years only.

JOB PROSPECTS
The students are educated in the field of chemistry, mainly synthesis, structure analysis including spectroscopic methods, molecular modelling and they have training in medicinal chemistry. Some students, depending on their thesis topic, may accomplish part of their research and/or graduate laboratory in Medical Academy in Wrocław under supervision of medical medical doctors or in the Institute of immunology and Experimental Therapy in Wrocław. Graduate level programs provide many of the skills needed in scientific laboratories as well as in modern chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
