BIOE 498 QP - Special Topics - Quant Pharmacology
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in bioengineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 12 hours, but no more than 8 in any one term.
This course provides an introduction to interactions between living organisms and substances (drugs) that impact physiology and disease. Concepts will be integrated from equilibrium thermodynamics, kinetics, mass transfer, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and structural biology to understand drug design and function. Students will develop skills in quantitative aspects of medicinal chemistry, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacokinetics through mathematical problem solving and computer simulations. Students will further design and critically assess innovative solutions for current challenges in pharmacology. Materials and content are designed for senior-level undergraduates and graduate students from diverse majors. Recommended Prerequisites: CS 101, CS 125, or BIOE 198MI, and CHEM 232 or CHEM 236, and MCB 150, and MATH 231
