Curriculum

The Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Program (MSc) "Medical Chemistry and Chemical Biology" is the result of a merger of two related Postgraduate Programs, entitled "Medical Chemistry: Drug Discovery and Design" and "Chemical Biology". Chemical Biology is a modern interdisciplinary field that incorporates the sciences of Chemistry and Biology and involves the application of chemical techniques and tools, common molecules produced using synthetic chemistry, to study their influence in biological systems. Chemical Biology finds application in Medical Chemistry, a related scientific field in which the molecules are designed to interact with biological processes in several diseases.

 

To obtain the Postgraduate Diploma (MSc), Postgraduate Students are required to attend and successfully pass all compulsory and semi optional courses in the first two semesters (1st and 2nd semesters) and to prepare successfully the master thesis in the second and third semesters.

The total Credit Units (ECTS) required for the acquisition of MSc is ninety (90).
