About the Department

The Faculty of Science inspires researchers and students to find sustainable solutions for complex societal issues. From forest fires to big data, from obesity to medicines and from molecules to the moon: our teaching and research programmes cover the full spectrum of the natural sciences. We share knowledge and experience with leading research institutes and industries, both here in the Netherlands and abroad.Working at the Faculty of Science means working with students, PhD candidates and researchers, all with a clear focus on their field and a broad view of the world. We employ more than 1,250 staff members, and we are home to around 6,000 students.

Division of Medicinal ChemistryThe Medicinal Chemistry Division combines research in molecular pharmacology, biochemistry, computer-aided drug design and chemical synthesis to acquire detailed insight into molecular interactions between proteins and biological active molecules (chemical compounds and nanobodies). Moreover, we are interested in modulation of cellular signaling by these biological active molecules. The division is performing research in various areas, including anti-cancer and anti-inflammation. The section is also involved in education within Bachelor's and Master's degree programs in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry, Medical Natural Sciences and Biomolecular Sciences.
