    • Understand the basic concepts of pharmacology and pharmacokinetics
    • Understand compounds for pharmaceutical application regarding their chemical structures, their structure-activity relationships, their physicochemical properties, their origins (synthetic, semi-synthetic, natural), their analytical control methods and their areas of use from a therapeutic point of view.
  • 3. Communication: Communicate in an appropriate, efficient, rigorous and respectful way in a professional perspective.
    • Understand the basic rules of French and of English (grammar, punctuation, connectors, etc.).

Learning Outcomes of UE

At the end of the course, the students will be able to :

- describe the current drug targets, already used in therapy or under investigations

- understand the mechanisms of action of drugs

- explain the major signaling pathways

The students will also have an overview of the new methods used in drug dicovery

Content of UE

1. Drug targets and cellular ionic signaling pathways
2. Drug targets and receptors of mediators (protein-kinases, guanylyl-cyclase,G-proteins, nuclear receptors)
3. Drug targets and neoronal and hormonal transmissions
4. New methods in drug discovery

Prior Experience
