About

The Medicinal Chemistry program at Illinois Institute of Technology  will provide you with a strong background in traditional chemistry areas as well as a fundamental understanding of chemistry and biological and pharmacological actions of pharmaceuticals and biomedical products.

Overview

Medicinal chemistry is a specialized area of chemistry with an emphasis on the study of drug design, drug synthesis, and pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis. 

At the Medicinal Chemistry program at Illinois Institute of Technology: 

You will learn to apply biological, chemical, and data science to computer-aided design, synthesis, evaluation, and analysis of structurally diverse drugs for the detection, treatment, and cure of human diseases. 

You will learn various hands-on techniques by taking lab courses customized for industrial needs in addition to standard lecture-based courses. 

You will be trained for chemical and instrumental analysis, drug design and synthesis, separation and purification of small molecules and biomolecules, pharmaceutical quality control and assurance, and understanding of drug action and safety.

The only program of its kind in Illinois, and one of only a handful in the country, Illinois Tech’s B.S. in medicinal chemistry will provide you with the technical skills to develop a career in biomedical science, bioanalytical science, biotechnology, medicine, or pharmaceutical science.

You will conduct undergraduate research under the direction of chemistry faculty working on cutting-edge medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry including cancer drug discovery, computational drug design and modeling, and microscopic characterization of biomaterials for regenerative medicine.
