Pharmaceutical Chemistry is a core discipline within the Pharmaceutical Sciences. It is centrally engaged in the drug discovery process, mainly focusing on lead identification, lead optimization and structure-activity relationship investigations, using technologies of molecular modeling and computer-aided drug design, natural products chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, and biochemical approaches.
The pharmaceutical chemistry is a wide scope field of physical, chemical, and biological sciences, where the undergraduate students gain basic knowledge in these interrelated fields to be the future expert scientist to discover, develop new therapeutics. In pharmaceutical chemistry department, our teams conduct researches adopting novel technologies, with the aim of discovering, synthesizing, and developing novel drugs that have lower side effects and better health outcome on the patients, especially in the fields of cancer therapy, anti-infectious agents, anti-inflammatory drugs, and anti-convulsant drugs.
There is a continuing, strong demands for highly qualified, motivated medicinal chemist in the pharmaceutical fields, thus, the pharmaceutical chemistry department in MUST university is committed to top-quality academic teaching to ensure that our under graduate and graduate students will fulfill the needs and demands of this field with exceptional contributions.
