About Course

The search for new medicinal products is one of the major driving forces behind the development and application of new synthetic methods. This free course, Birth of a drug, focuses on a specific case study that follows the development of a drug for the treatment of high blood pressure. It is a particularly good example of the application of organic chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry, and illustrates the scientific processes that are involved in the development of any new drug.

What Will You Learn?

  • After studying this course, you should be able to:
  • explain the criteria that must be satisfied before starting new drug development
  • say how an understanding of the pharmaceutical background is a necessary basis for the design of the new drug
  • understand the strategies used in the research programme and how they led eventually to the development of a new drug.
