How are drugs designed?

How are drugs designed? Come on Friday 2nd May at 18:00 at the Athens Science Festival, Technopolis Gkazi to listen to my talk! See the detailed program of the festival here.

CADDThis talk will address how drugs are designed to combat a disease – from the discovery of the cause of the disease (e.g. a mutant protein), specialized techniques for the design of small chemical molecules (that are drugs), to clinical trials. We will also discuss advances and progresses in individualized treatment (also known as personalized medicine), i.e. how DNA testing could help each patient receive medication specifically tailored for them.

Πώς σχεδιάζονται τα φάρμακα; Ελάτε την Παρασκευή 2 Μαϊου στις 18:00 στο Athens Science Festival, Τεχνοπολις Γκάζι, να ακούσετε την ομιλία μου.

Η ομιλία έχει θέμα το πώς επιτελείται ο σχεδιασμός φαρμάκων για μία ασθένεια – από την ανακάλυψη του αιτίου που προκαλεί την ασθένεια (π.χ. μια μεταλλαγμένη πρωτεΐνη), εξειδικευμένες τεχνικές για το σχεδιασμό μικρών χημικών μορίων που αποτελούν τα φάρμακα, μεχρι και τις κλινικές δοκιμές. Επίσης θα συζητήσουμε τις προοπτικές και εξελίξεις στην εξατομικευμένη θεραπεία, το πώς δηλαδή με εξέταση DNA μπορεί ο κάθε ασθενής να λαμβάνει ένα φάρμακο που είναι ειδικά κατάλληλο για εκείνον.

Περισσότερες πληροφορίες και μία μικρή περίληψη για το θέμα θα βρείτε σε πρόσφατο άρθρο στην ιστοσελίδα της διοργάνωσης.

  1. I’d personally say no.. Diet pills will do the job for that shorter volume of time, but as soon as you halt having them, the slimming gel goes to return again. My sister fell into the diet pill craze, expended a huge amount of income, and was skinny for the although, but is now again to exactly where she begun (furthermore some). Stick with maintaining a healthy diet and physical exercise. It really is actually the sole legitimate way.

  2. also here we see as say prof dr mircea orasanu and prof horia orasanu some aspects of

  3. and sure other situations we see then some aspects appear as say prof dr mircea orasanu and prof horia orasanu as followed

  4. we consider and thus we deduced more other and as prof dr mircea orasanu and prof horia orasanu how is known
    and followed
    for all and all .
    Uniform convergence implies pointwise convergence, which in turn implies pointwise almost everywhere convergence.
    We now add a fourth mode of convergence, that is weaker than uniform convergence but stronger than pointwise convergence:
    Definition 16 (Locally uniform convergence) A sequence of functions converges locally uniformly to a limit if, for every bounded subset of , converges uniformly to on . In other words, for every bounded and every , there exists such that for all and .
    Remark 6 At least as far as is concerned, an equivalent definition of local uniform convergence is: converges locally uniformly to if, for every point , there exists an open neighbourhood of such that converges uniformly to on . The equivalence of the two definitions is immediate from the Heine-Borel theorem. More generally, the adverb “locally” in mathematics is usually used in this fashion; a propery is said to hold locally on some domain
    and more where must used a correctly grammar Log in
    Your writing, at its best.
    Grammarly makes sure everything you type
    is clear, effective, and mistake-free.or these shown that must considered a complete grammar respect to this that is incorrectly observed prof dr mircea orasanu ,this is clearly

  5. also here we mention that can be appear some connections

  6. more are as observed in medicine observed prof dr mircea orasanu

  7. for more situations can be used certain equations with specially conditions observed prof dr mircea orasanu

  8. in specially situations for chemistry and medicine are used specifically equations as observed prof dr mircea orasanu and prof drd horia orasanu and first for

  9. in many cases we present that appear as observed prof dr mircea orasanu and prof drd horia orasanu and other as followed in case

  10. we mention that here for Lagrangian and Non holonomic ahas a work and for c. udriste and that have new ideas in these sense

  11. in more cases are used many formulation of chemistry and medicine observed prof dr mircea orasanu

  12. as is used in mant situations must used the chemistry results and these are observed by prof dr mircea orasanu and also these must used byprof dr J.r. Ockendon that discovert operations with natural numbers as 2+3 =

  13. in many cases are used the results of fundamental enunciation so that as observed prof dr mircea orasanu are used for CHEMISTRY, MEDICINE ,and other and thus that daniela nedelcu ,daniela voinea as INSP SCol ,mircea miclea was ministry in psih medic , that don;t know these aspects or prof . florin gheorghe that known some relations as 4+ 5 , or e ortici also ; these are sufficient to describe thye situation of CHEMISTRY , MEDICINE AND LIFE ,with cases of general case is a combination of scaling and rotation. We already know the length of the line from 0 to zw is going to be the absolute value |zw| which equals |z| |w|. (In the diagram, |z| is about 1.6, and |w| is about 2.1, so |zw| should be about

  14. are possible many situations as can be wish specially in chenistry or pharma with medicine observed prof dr mircea orasanu and prof drd horia orasanu as followed vademecum medical and analytical mechanics that have not meet in IOP Physics Bristol or in valachia university but meet in Louis university where work prof dr mircea orasanu 1 serves as a means to introduce many of the topics discussed within this thesis. We begin with a discussion on the importance of ruthenium and osmium based metal complexes in supramolecular chemistry and their properties, electronic, photophysical and photochemical, which have attracted great interest over the last 40 years. We then examine the “parent” complexes of many of the compounds synthesized in this thesis, [Ru(bpy)3]2+and [Os(bpy)3]2+ and their importance to the area of inorganic chemistry is highlighted.

    We continue with a discussion on the primary concern of this thesis, the controlled synthesis of supramolecular species using homo- and hetero- coupling reactions such as, Suzuki and Ni(0) cross-coupling. From this view point we look at the types of synthetic techniques As chemistry has developed over the centuries from the science of matter and its transformations, to the science of communications centers and a relay between simple and complex molecules, it is been defined by its interdisciplinary relationships. For more than 150 years chemistry has developed a vast library of sophisticated and powerful approaches for the construction of increasingly complex molecular structures by forming and breaking covalent bonds between atoms in a controlled manner.

    Covalent bonding and molecular chemistry has been at the heart of this evolution but in more recent years we have turned our attention to non-covalent interactive forces. Beyond molecular chemistry based on the covalent bond there lies the field of “supramolecular chemistry”, where the goal is to gain control over the intramolecular bonds present. This concept is concerned with the next step in increasing the complexity beyond the single molecule towards the supermolecule and organized polymolecular systems held together by non-covalent interactions. ,but here prof. Dr. Mircea Orasanu have more other solutions

    The definition of supramolecular chemistry has evolved since its conception by J. M Lehn in 1978, but today it is defined as “the chemistry beyond the molecule” and deals with organized entities of higher complexity that results from the association of two or more chemical species held together by interactive forces. 1, , This definition is very generous and covers a broad area of chemical phenomena and structures, and extends to biological systems, coordination chemistry and new materials. Having said this, the objective of supramolecular chemistry is very specific in its creation of “supramolecular species” which are characterized by both the definite spatial arrangement of the individual components and by the nature of the interaction of the intermolecular bonds that hold these components together. In order to achieve these criteria specific component units must be utilized within the supramolecular aggregate. This type of system is quite different to a large molecule, as it will not just be a supposition of the individual component units, as shown in figure 1.1, but new intercomponent interactions will also arise from the linking of these individual units.
    In a supramolecular entity, such as a dinuclear species as shown in figure 1.2, it is possible, that upon irradiation with light or application of a voltage, processes involving two or more components may take place, such as intercomponent transfer processes (for example electron or energy transfer). Illustration of the photochemical and electrochemical criteria used to classify a complex as a supramolecular species or as a large molecule
    In this example, if compound D~A is radiated with light and one of its subunits (D or A) is excited rather than the whole molecule, it can be classed as a supramolecular species. For the system shown above, regardless of whether D or A is excited, the supramolecular system has two option: (1) It may relax back to the ground state (energy dissipated as light/heat) or (2) charge transfer may occur, in which case D+~A- is formed. Charge recombination usually occurs very quickly unless a quenching molecule is present to oxidize/reduce the charge separated species D+~A-. The fundamental difference that lies between supramolecules and large molecules is the level of interaction between the intercomponent subunits. For a large molecule, charge and excitational energy are delocalized throughout the whole system whereas for a supramolecular species, charge and energy are localized on one of the molecular subunits.

  15. we observed appear and other aspects due to prof dr constantin udriste for non holonomic motion and problem due to chemistry and medicine and also to prof dr tevy and prof dr mihai postolache that was studied operations 2+ 5 =.. and other as integration in Lebesgue sense

  16. here to take

  17. A sequence of functions converges locally uniformly to a limit if, for every bounded subset of, converges uniformly to on. In other words, for every bounded and every, there exists such that for all and. Remark 6 At least as far as is concerned, an equivalent definition of local uniform convergence is: converges locally uniformly to if, for every point, there exists an open neighborhood of such that converges uniformly to on. The equivalence of the two definitions is immediate from the Heine-Borel theorem.
