Our mission is to create new knowledge for the discovery and development of new pharmaceutical drugs. It involves the identification, synthesis, and development of new chemical entities which are suitable for therapeutic use , and investigates their interaction at the molecular, cellular, and whole-animal level. It also includes the study of existing drugs, their biological properties, and their quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR).
Our department in the School of Pharmacy at Zanjan University does continuing research on synthetic chemistry, and molecular modeling applying the latest strategies and concepts from broad disciplines of science .
- Provide a creative and nurturing academic environment which furthers faculty development.
