About the course

In the course, you will acquire knowledge of how to design compounds that recognise small as well as biomacromolecular targets. You will also get familiar with common properties and principles by which organometallic and organocatalysts, as well as enzymes, operate. Some insight into the chemical modification of proteins and the design of artificial enzymes will also be provided. Exercises and projects serve to give you a working knowledge of the core contents of the course.
