Cheminfortics and Toxicology

Semester 1 Students learn the fundamentals of pharmacology and toxicology and are introduced to computational drug design, programming for biology and statistical computing in R. Semester 2 Students consider more advanced concepts in toxicology and investigate controversial areas of toxicology. The students also learn to apply bioinformatic and cheminformatic tools to large data sets. Semester 3 Students work independently with the guidance of an academic or industry-based thesis supervisor on a cheminformatics research project. The course involves lectures, laboratory-based training, self- directed learning and a three-month independent research project. Competence is assessed through a mixture of written examinations, computer-based examinations, course work and a research thesis.
