The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

The teaching activities of Department 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 Department 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 Department 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 Department 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 peptidoglycan synthesis, bacterial DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, enzymes involved in the mycolic acid biosynthesis in Mycobacteria, lectins galectin-8, DC-SIGN and FimH, voltage-gated sodium and potassium channels, Hsp90, Toll-like and NOD receptors, targets in blood coagulation cascade, and compounds acting on vitronectin 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 (2015-2021, financed by Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology), research projects financed by ARRS and the European project PhD4GlyoDrug (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2017-EJD-765581).
