Medicinal chemistry is a scientific discipline at the intersection of chemistry and computational science, connected with designing, synthesizing, and developing new pharmaceuticals. In the beginning, medicinal chemistry was involved in screening natural sources like plants or animals for bioactive compounds. Now, natural products serve as the lead structures in the synthesis and development of new chemical entities dedicated for therapeutic use. Medicinal chemistry includes preparation and analysis of existing and new potential drugs, evaluation of their biological properties, analysis of structure-activity relationships. It is a highly interdisciplinary field widely using advanced, synthetic, spectroscopic, and computational methods. Thus, medicinal chemists cooperate with theoretical chemists, synthetic chemists, medical doctors, microbiologists, and pharmacologists. The graduation document certifies the degree in chemistry with the notification of a deepened specialisation in Medicinal Chemistry. The study for applicants without an engineering degree lasts 2 years, otherwise 1.5 years only.
