Learn Chemistry from an expert

This course is designed for researchers who wish to fill gaps in their basic chemistry and see how it relates to drug design and optimisation.
Also first year U/G students within any of the sciences or those with a basic understanding of chemistry but who want to understand how molecules relate to medicinal chemistry can benefit from the content of this course.
If you are a professional in the non-chemical sciences e.g. medicine, this course is also for you.

The main goal of this course is to understand the composition of atoms and the reactivities of the elements and the difference between covalent and ionic bond formation.
Other skills you will acquire are:

  • Being able to identify different ionic interactions
  • Understanding how the strength of acids and bases are calculated
  • Being able to identify functional groups and propose how they react
  • Understanding how structural variation of a drug can alter its pharmacological properties
  • Gain an insight into the fundamental molecular basis of interaction of a drug with a drug target

Adam Le Gresley, PhD

Dr. Adam Le Gresley is Associate Professor in the department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London.
Le Gresley was awarded his PhD in supramolecular organic chemistry by the University of Surrey in 2004 and carried out his postdoctoral research on photolabile compounds at Drexel College of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA, funded by the NIH.

He was appointed to the Faculty of Science at Kingston University in 2009, where he has been teaching on U/G and P/G courses within chemistry, pharmacy and the biological sciences for the last 6 years. In addition to teaching, Le Gresley maintains a small research group, funded by a number of industrial partners including GlaxoSMithKline with interests in NMR metabolomics, the synthesis of new in vitro diagnostic probes for problem pathogens and novel Rab7 inhibitors for the treatment of diabetes.
He is a regular reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to the development of courses across the faculty. Le Gresley was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011 and subsequently to Associate Professor in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry in 2013.

Very complete and straight to the point
By Inês A. on 27. November 2017 for Buffer Solutions – Acid-Base Reactions

Very complete and straight to the point, better than when my teacher explains

 
Very discriptive breakdown.
By Precious M. on 03. November 2017 for Periodic Table – Introduction to Chemistry

Very educational, a good source for priming for MCAT. Quizzes at the end of slides, and option to take notes while learning are a plus!

 
Very helpful
By Neuer N. on 24. October 2017 for Chemistry: Introduction

The teaching is easy to understand. Can you have some lectures on physics
