The GDCh Division of Medicinal Chemistry has existed since 1971. Its approximately 900 members work in university institutes, other research institutions and in the pharmaceutical industry. The Division bridges the gap between the subject areas of chemistry, biology, medicine, pharmacy, computer science and engineering. It deals with interdisciplinary issues of modern drug development, in particular finding active ingredients, lead substance optimization including modern technologies such as combinatorial synthesis, high-throughput screening systems based on molecular biological principles, drug design, molecular modelling, quantitative structure/effect analyses, pharmacokinetics and metabolism.
Medicinal chemistry describes a modern multidisciplinary field of research. It uses the latest scientific findings in biology and chemistry for the targeted production of active substances and thus makes a decisive contribution to the development of innovative medicines.
The Division maintains the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and promotes medicinal chemistry, which is not an established subject in Germany
It promotes and supports young academics and ensures their professional vocational training
The Division of Medicinal Chemistry is committed to providing German students of chemistry and pharmacy with a good education in order to maintain Germany as a pharmaceutical research location.
