Division of Medicinal Chemistry

Organic low-molecular weight compounds are indispensable as drugs, and tools for medical research. Candidate compounds of drugs are guided to an optimum pattern from the perspective of activity, pharmacokinetics and toxicity using synthetic development. When chemical compounds are used and evaluated, each chemical compound is required to be handled appropriately depending on the research details and experiment techniques. The synthetic development support laboratory provides extensive support for various issues faced when handling low-molecular weight compounds, by utilizing the knowledge and technology of organic chemistry.
