The course is a continuation of its parent course Drug Design. Additional details of selected topics of the parent course and also new topics are provided. In Journal Club sessions, recent research articles will be featured with the students to deepen their knowledge in the areas discussed during the previous lectures. In this way, the students can discover further connections themselves and make sure of the usefulness of their newly obtained knowledge in drug design. The lectures will take place weekly or (if possible) contracted into 4 blocks.
