Teaching in Münster


Ongoing Teaching


Allgemeine und analytische Chemie der anorganischen  Arznei-, Hilfs- und Schadstoffe (unter Einbeziehung von Arzneibuchmethoden)

Prof. Dr. Koch is responsible for the 1st semester pharmacy practical course and the associated lectures 'Chemistry for Pharmacists I' and 'Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry I'.

Please see: 1. Semester


An introduction into Artificial Intelligence
(every winter semester, teaching language: German)

This course gives an introduction in into artifitical intelligence for pharmacists (and master chemistry and drug science). It combines a theoretical lecture (1 hour per semester) with practical excercise as jupyter notebooks (1 hour per semester). The development of this course was funded by the "Apothekerstiftung Westfalen Lippe)

The course will take place every friday, Seminarroom 1, Pharmacampus.
The theoretical lecture will take place from 10.00 c.t. to 11.00.
The practical excercise will take place from 11.00 ct. to 12.00. Please bring a laptop.

Drug Design and Development
(every winter semester, teaching language: German)

This course gives an introduction into modern drug design and development methods.

Computational Methods in Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Design
(every summer semester , teaching language: German)

The identification and development of new drugs is nowadays hardly imaginable without the use of computational methods. These methods support the complete development workflow from initial target and hit identification up to the development of the final drug candidates.
This course will give an introduction into computational methods for the design of chemical probes and potential drugs that are important in pharmaceutical research and medicinal chemistry: It will covers cheminformatic methods like fingerprint-based similarity searches, bioinformatic methods like homology modelling and molecular design methods like pharmacophore searches and molecular docking.

Learnweb link will provided early before the start of the summer semester.
