A well organised course that is part of a series 'Discovering Science'. Although I am retired, these courses are ideal for someone thinking of taking a chemistry degree at Leeds University; the courses, with an additional test, would give the participant some credits towards their degree. The extra reading is also well worth spending time on. A good course, thank you to the organisers/educators.

I would highly recommend this course. You get into very important concepts in medicinal chemistry and it is very interesting. By myself I can say that this course is making me really excited in my future step to do my PhD in pharmaceutical chemistry (pharmacology) or medicinal chemistry.

This really interesting course is definitely worth taking, even if you aren't doing the entire 'Discovering Science' programme. The course videos and texts are clear and helpful (as is the glossary!) and there are links to relevant supplementary material. I learned a lot.

A very informative course for anyone. I, personally, had no prior knowledge to medicinal chemistry but it has helped me understanding cancer research and medical imaging techniques much more. Everything is explained simply and more in depth as 'extras'.

It was an excellent course: interesting, compact, but without a shallow /simplistic approach. It provided useful links, articles etc. for further studying. Thank you!
