Outline and Purpose of the Course (Aim) To teach students the basic experimental techniques required to carry out research in fields that form the basis of physical pharmcy experiments: thermodynamics, structural biology, and kinetics. The course also aims to equip students with the understanding and skills to carry out safe experimental procedures.

(Summary) The course combines lectures and practical training to cover the fields that form the basis of biological chemistry experiments: structural biology, biophysical chemistry, clinical analytical chemistry, spectroscopy, interface science, molecular structural science, and radiochemistry.
Course Goals To learn how to perform the basic techniques of physical pharmacy experiments safely and reliably.
