Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Subject is based on the knowledge of organic chemistry and biochemistry and gives basic information on the relationship between drug and its receptor at molecular level. It explains the strategic principles of drug development. In the interpretation are discussed selected categories of active substances in terms of their structural similarity, and mechanism of their action on molecular level.
