Program Description

The medicinal chemistry MS program integrates aspects of contemporary medicinal chemistry and pharmacology, emphasizing topics most relevant to therapeutics design, discovery, and action. The core curriculum focuses on a combination of synthetic organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and pharmacology courses. Specialized, in-depth electives are offered in these areas. The program is designed to develop students’ knowledge of medicinal chemistry through design, synthesis, and pharmacological profiling of novel pharmacotherapeutics as applied to helping solve unmet medical needs. For this purpose, many program graduates have established research careers in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. Undergraduate prerequisites are general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry or cell/molecular biology.
