Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student will:

  • possess an extensive knowledge of the methods used in the modern design of biomolecules and biomimetics.
  • master the concepts, methods and theories used in biomolecular design.
  • be able to communicate problems, methods and results in the field.
  • be able to discuss issues related to sustainable development and ethics from a biomolecular perspective. 

Course content

The course covers, design-synthesis function of biomolecules and biomolecular systems. Examples of areas addressed in the course are synthetic receptors, combinatorial chemistry, chemical libraries, supramolecular chemistry, synkinetik, self-organized systems (self-assembly), self assemled monolayers, medicinal natural products, anti-freezing surfaces, artificial cell membranes, nano-chemistry to medical applications, catalytic peptides, conjugated derivatiserade oliotiofener as conformation-sensitive probes, for example,Protein folding. 

Teaching and working methods

Instruction is given in the form of lectures, seminars. All classes are mandatory. The students oppose on each other at the oral presentation.
