The Medicinal Chemistry (MC) section conducts innovative, multidisciplinary and collaborative research to discover and develop new drugs for improving human health. The MC group is dedicated to hit-to-lead medicinal chemistry and lead optimization. The medicinal chemists within the CBT work together with the Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) center and other medicinal chemists within the School of Pharmacy (SOP). Thus, the efficient design of inhibitors, searches of structurally related compounds (SAR by catalogue), and virtual screening capabilities are done via CADD in conjunction with syntheses efforts from the MC section.
