Welcome to the Homepage of Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Hacettepe University Faculty of Pharmacy
Pharmaceutical chemistry is a multifaceted scientific dicipline that is dedicated to the improvement of human health through research leading to new concepts for the design and development of safe and effective therapeutic, diagnostic and environmental agents involving aspects of biological and pharmaceutical sciences. As defined, it is concerned with the design, preparation and identification of biologically active compounds, the study of their metabolism, the interpretation of their mode of action at the molecular level and the construction of structure activity relationships.
Our outstanding department has the best to offer in research opportunities and graduate education, with fourteen faculty, and twelve graduate students and post-doctoral research associates. Research in this department is inspired by the development of molecular approaches for design and synthesis of bio-active molecules for study and modulation of disease related processes on a molecular level. Our faculty are actively engaged in research for the discovery and development of new drugs and are exploiting new biological targets for the treatment of CNS and cardiovascular disorders, and infectious diseases. We blend conventional disciplines to allow for specialized research to be conducted in drug design, synthesis, analysis, and biological evaluation.
The goal of graduate program training in Pharmaceutical Chemistry is to prepare highly trained, versatile individuals for a career in the pharmaceutical sciences and we are proud of our record of outstanding graduate students who now enjoy fruitful careers in academia, the pharmaceutical industries as well as with government and other regulatory agencies.
This site will give you a comprehensive introduction to the group: the research that is being performed; the research topics; the group members and their projects; the labs and equipment.

The 5th International Symposium on Pharmaceutical Chemistry will be held on in İstanbul, September 5-7, 2007. The program will include 2 poster and 5 speaker sessions.
