Course Description & Objectives: 

This course is intended to give the graduate trainee detailed information on drug-receptor theory necessary for the design of new drugs.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of this course, the student is expected to be able to:-

  • Describe the theoretical aspects of drug-receptor interactions;
  • Describe the inter- and intra- molecular interactions between drugs and receptors;
  • Explain the importance of enzyme kinetics in drug action;
  • Explain the biologic importance of organic chemistry as it relates to enzyme action;
  • Give a comparison between model chemical and enzymatic reactions;
  • Apply the knowledge and skills acquired for the development of new drugs by interfering with actions of enzymes and other biomolecular systems;
  • Develop new drugs from natural sources as lead compounds through structural modifications;
  • Use knowledge of interactions between biological systems and organic compounds to design new drugs
