Modules of the Molecular Conceptor Learning Series

The Molecular Conceptor Learning Series comprises five computer-based learning modules each of which are designed to give students and professionals in the drug discovery field the comprehensive training necessary to face even the toughest drug design challenges. The modules are:

Medicinal Chemistry    

Medicinal Chemistry

The Medicinal Chemistry course module covers all the topics that provide a basis to understanding medicinal chemistry and the techniques used on a daily basis by the medicinal chemist. Topics such as the Molecular Basis of Drugs, Principles of Rational Drug Design, Structure Activity Relationships, QSAR, Synthesis, Bioisosterism, Library Design and ADME properties are all presented in this module.

Structural Bioinformatics    

Structural Bioinformatics

The Structural Bioinformatics course module discusses the molecular modeling, structure analysis and database searching techniques used to predict and analyse the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, and relate this information to their function. The application of these techniques to structure-based design is also examined.
