The Chair of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

The teaching activities of Chair of Pharmaceutical Chemistry are on undergraduate and postgraduate levels and on the first, the second (MSc) and the third (PhD) Bologna levels. Teachers of the Chair of Pharmaceutical Chemistry alone or in cooperation with other teachers of the faculty are engaged in realization of the following programs: Pharmacy (MSc and PhD, up to 13 subjects), Laboratory biomedicine, (1st level, up to 6 subjects), Industrial pharmacy (MSc, up to 6 subjects), Cosmetology (MSc) and Toxicology (PhD).

Teachers of the Chair of Pharmaceutical Chemistry are together with Slovenian Chamber of Pharmacy engaged in realization of different specializations and in permanent education of pharmacists. They are also members of different professional commissions and editorial boards.

The Chair of Pharmaceutical Chemistry performs research concerning design, synthesis and biological evaluation of new compounds and develops new molecular tools for electron spin resonance and fluorescence spectroscopy. The main focuses are new compounds with influence on enzymes involved in steroid hormones transformation, in the peptidoglycane synthesis, bacterial DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, enzymes involved in the mycolic acid biosynthesis in Mycobacteria, lectin receptors DC-SIGN and FimH, voltage-gated ion channels, Toll-like and NOD receptors, targets in blood coagulation cascade, and compounds acting on vitronectine receptors. Researches develop new synthetic pathways using microwaves, new analytical and separation methods, and new stable nitrioxides and fluorescents labels.

The mentioned research activities are performed in the frame of Research program group Pharmaceutical chemistry (2015-2020, financed by Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology), EU-INTAFAR (6th Framework Programme), ORCHID and MAREX (7th Framework Programmes) and other projects.
