Description of Medicinal Chemistry
In the Master's specialisation Medicinal Chemistry you will deal with the discovery, design, development, targeted delivery, and both pharmacological and analytical characterisation of drug substances.
The courses in the specialisation Medicinal Chemistry are strongly related to the research within two research institutes: The Institute for Molecules and Materials and the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences. Research internships are available in both institutes, but you can also go abroad, or to a company for one of the internships.
The specialisation programme comprises four mandatory courses (15 ec) and one specialisation-related internship. The intership includes practical work and report, as well as a literature thesis of 6 ec and, optionally, one or two courses (max 6 ec) relevant to the internship.
A list of available research departments can be found further on in this prospectus.
In case you cannot start in September, but enrol later in the year (with permission of the Admissions Office), you start with the research internship and take the mandatory courses at the next available option.
