CHEM 5500 - Fundamentals of Brewing Science

Beer brewing has been practiced since ancient times.  However, it is only within the last couple centuries that humankind has recognized the importance of yeast and microbial fermentation.  These early revelations in brewing science have paved the way for great advances in molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology.  The overall goal of this course is to provide students with basic fundamentals of biochemistry and microbiology necessary for successful applied craft brewing. This course aims to combine skills/concepts taken from microbiology (yeast propagation; inhibition of bacterial growth by hops and ethanol; bacterial contamination assays), biochemistry (intermediary metabolism; lipid biosynthesis; enzyme kinetics), engineering (fluid transfer; heat transfer; industrial fermentation), and plant biology (barley and hop cultivation and harvesting). A combination of lectures with hands-on lab exercises and field trips will be employed to reinforce lecture topics.  This course exploits a general public interest in alcohol and its production to demonstrate fundamental scientific concepts using an applied/experiential based approach. As such this course will prepare students with a wide range of key scientific concepts that can have direct application for careers in fermentation science.

CHEM 5810 - Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery

This course focuses on the chemical principles involved in small molecule drug discovery, design and development. The organic chemistry of drug design and drug action is studied in detail. Starting from strategies for finding a lead compound through optimizing target interactions and drug efficacy, to ultimately bringing the drug to market, the impact of each step on the drug design process is discussed. Drug design tools and approaches such as combinatorial chemistry, molecular modeling, structure-activity-relationships and other strategies are analyzed in detail along with selected topics in the medicinal chemistry of both classic therapeutic agents and newer therapeutic breakthroughs.
