        Department of Medicinal chemistry is located in the School of Pharmacy and has highly qualified teaching and research staffs. The Department consists of nine faculty members, including three Professors, four Associate Professors and two lecturers. Six faculty members hold Ph.D. degrees. Some eminent faculty members are conferred the honorable titles, including one winner of Tianjin 1000 Young Talents Program, one Tianjin Excellent Teacher, one “131” Innovative Talent of Tianjin, and one New Century Excellent Talent of Tianjin Medical University.
        The Department has the responsibility to teach chemistry and related laboratory courses for undergraduate and graduate students. The courses offered by the Department include Medicinal Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Chemistry Experiment II and Drug Design. Several textbooks edited by the Department were published. Some teaching projects were funded by the Society of Medical Education of Chinese Medical Association.
         The Department has been undertaking diverse research programs and actively collaborating with the medical and biological research programs. Our research projects cover the fields of medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, and bioanalytical chemistry. The research interests in the Department are mainly as follows: 1) design and synthesis of novel anti-diabetic drugs targeting PTP1B and PPARs; 2) design and synthesis of novel anti-tumor drugs targeting MMPs; 3) computer-aided drug design and synthesis of novel antivirus drugs; 4) development of methodologies for enantioselective synthesis of chiral drugs; 5) development of EPR probes for oxidative stress; 6) development of paramagnetic compounds for structure determination of biomacromolecules by magnetic resonance-related techniques.
        The Department has built up medicinal chemistry-related research platforms and achieved critical research accomplishments. The research projects in the Department were funded by national and provincial research grants, including National Natural Science Foundation of China, Tianjin Natural Science Foundation as well as China Postdoctoral Science Foundation. More than fifty papers have been published in the high level peer-reviewed international journals and about ten patents have been approved in the past five years.
