  • They know the way from the target discovery to the drug and the techniques of rational Drug Design.
  • They know NMR and X-ray Crystallography as important tools for target monitoring and optimization and are able to explain it.
  • The students know the relationship between chemical structure and effect and the techniques for theoretical prognosis and experimental tests, particular x-ray crystallography and NMR-experiments.
  • The students understand concepts of synthesis and are able to assess their application in Drug Design.
  • The students know the borders of x-ray crystallography and NMR-experiments.
