About

The Medicinal Chemistry program of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences teaches students about the work of developing new drugs to treat diseases begins with the medicinal chemist.

Overview

The Medicinal Chemistry program of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will help you build on your undergraduate degree in pharmacy, chemistry, biology, or related field with thorough knowledge of the behavior of chemical substances at the molecular level.

Program highlights

During this two-year program, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside professional experts in modern laboratories and learn how to design, synthesize, and analytically examine drug compounds. You’ll study how chemical substances behave at a molecular level, and how the chemical properties affect drug kinetics, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion. And you’ll participate in research directed toward a fuller understanding of pharmacological actions, leading to improved drug design. All so you can begin or advance your career with confidence. Students may elect to complete a minor concentration in drug metabolism, integrating the knowledge of drug metabolism, analysis of pharmaceuticals in biological fluids and incubation mixtures, enzyme kinetics, and animal care and use.
