PhD in Bioorganic Chemistry

General

Program Description

The doctoral program in Bioorganic Chemistry encompasses both experimental work and theoretical courses in Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry. The program puts a particular emphasis on high-level theoretical knowledge and practical skills in organic synthesis, physical methods of Organic Chemistry, structure elucidation, and molecular modeling focused on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships. Graduates will be highly proficient in Organic Chemistry focused on the design and synthesis of biologically active compounds. They will be well qualified to undertake research and development work in Chemistry and Pharmacy, including the design and manufacturing of drugs, their transporters and pharmaceutical auxiliary substances.
