Human life expectancy and quality of life has been dramatically increased over the last hundred years and is directly connected to the rise of modern medicine. The Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology (MCCB) program places the student at the forefront of the revolutionary efforts now underway to understand and treat disease. The program provides a fundamental understanding of the drug-body interaction, from the molecular to the macromolecular level, allowing the identification and exploitation of bioactive molecules. The topics will range from drug discovery, molecular docking, drug delivery and resistance, to the intricacies of refining our knowledge of drug target and function within molecular biology. Your studies in MCCB will also comprise early research involvement. This flagship program is based on an innovative, multidisciplinary approach encompassing life scientists, chemists, biophysicists, and biotechnologist, who are addressing the major health challenges of mankind.
