Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Pharmaceutical Chemistry is an interrelated discipline combining synthetic organic chemistry, pharmacology, microbiology, biochemistry, physical and computational chemistry.

It is concerned with the drug discovery and development process, starting from target identification, finding a lead compound, structure-activity relationship investigations to lead optimization, using different technologies such as In-silico screening and high throughput screening.

Also, it involves the study of the pharmacokinetic/ pharmacodynamic properties of different pharmaceutical active agents, their synthetic strategies, and the structure activity relationships of these drugs.

In addition, Pharmaceutical Chemistry concerns with identification and determination of drug concentration in different pharmaceutical dosage forms as well as in biological fluids such as plasma, serum and urine.
