Biomedicinal Chemistry and Drug Research

Odoo CMS - a big picture

The Biomedicinal Chemistry and Drug Research field refers to the development of processes and applications in the medical and pharmaceutical areas, focused on drug discovery and clarification of its mechanisms of action. This includes the assessment of toxic effects, drug interactions and resistance, using in silico, in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo model systems as well as analytical methods for diagnosis and monitoring of therapies. It also includes the phytochemical composition, bioactivity, pharmacological, immunological and clinical application of plants and mineral waters, the development of bioanalytical methods for identification and quantification of compounds in food, drugs, biological samples and plant extracts, and microbial ecology, epidemiology, virulence and resistance studies.
