Medicinal chemistry - How do drugs reach their site of action in our bodies?

June 21, 2023 | 18:00 - 20:00

Developing active ingredients for new drugs is a fascinating challenge. Essentially, it is a matter of providing a molecule with those properties that allow it to reach the right site in a human body in a suitable concentration and to act there, with the greatest and most selective effect possible. It sounds very simple, but it has kept many scientists busy for years. Martin Missbach, Head of Medicinal Chemistry of Novartis in Basel, would like to take us on a little tour through his world of medicinal chemistry. Prior knowledge of chemistry is not required!
