The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Main themes
Work done by a small team of students and presented to all students enrolled in the elective course. The various fields of pharmaceutical sciences taught previously will be discussed from the structure of an active compound to its action on the drug target. The student will have to think about the structure of the active compound (chemical functions, conformations, lipophily'), its origin (synthetic, natural product, produced from biotechnology), its target (s) drug (s) (receptor, transporter, ion channel, enzyme), its interaction with one (s)-and its ability to achieve these (pharmacokinetics and metabolism).

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :


Give to the student the opportunity to integrate concepts learned throughout the degree in pharmaceutical sciences by bringing it to think 'how' cross, the structure of an active compound in its action on a drug target.


The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
- Team of teachers covering all the domains needed for the integration of knowledges (chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists ...) - Interactive Seminars (Students / students and students / teachers) Seminars should be presented just before the students do go on stage. Students have had almost all the theoretical knowledge given in the first three years of Bachelor degree in pharmaceutical sciences and will have the opportunity to integrate them before going on stage.
