Medical Chemistry

by Adam Le Gresley, PhD

You may notice that the Medical Chemistry section contains an inordinately large number of videos. This is no accident. The fields of medicine and chemistry are very closely linked, as the principles of the latter, in some way or another, touch nearly every aspect of the former (e.g., pharmacokinetics, bioavailability, the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, and the basic building blocks of proteins and amino acids and how they interact with one another).

Being able to grasp the chemical interplay between the human body and its environment is important not only for researchers and drug developers but also for clinicians.

Best teacher
By Rabiah A. on 05. June 2021 for Medical Chemistry

Great method of teaching... i have learnt a lot from this lecture and i like it very much

 
Informative
By Aliannya N. on 25. August 2020 for Medical Chemistry

Quite an informative lecture. Helpful in breaking down complex concepts.

 
Well explained details on mechanism of action --> also relates to vancomycin mechanism of action
By Nicholas C. on 27. October 2019 for Peptidoglycan – Beta Lactam Antibiotics

I watched the glycopeptide pharmacology lecture, wanted more details on the mechanism of action, segwayed to antimicrobial resistance, then segwayed to "Peptidoglycans - Beta Lactam Antibiotics" video lecture. The D-Alanine-D-Alanine concept also relates to the mechanism of action of vancomycin.
