Medicinal Chemistry 205 Spring 2011 Organic Chemistry II COURSE INTRODUCTION, GROUND RULES, AND GENERAL INFORMATION YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR READING AND UNDER- STANDING THE MATERIAL IN THIS HANDOUT Instructors Professor Don Bergstrom Professor David Colby Room 2042 BRK Room 412A RHPH [email protected] [email protected] Telephone (49)4-6275 Telephone (49)6-3962 Teaching Assistant Christina Marian, [email protected] Course Objectives In MCMP 205, you'll continue to apply the theoretical principles learned in MCMP 204 to the functional classes of compounds that are most important in pharmaceutical and biological chemistry. We'll continue to rely heavily on certain principles of general chemistry, such as ionization theory and the theories of orbitals and bonding. You should be prepared to review this material as necessary. We're particularly interested in teaching you the techniques of studying, learning on your own, and problem solving that will be important not only in organic chemistry, but also in other areas of study and in future pharmacy practice. MCMP 205 will be taught in a format that is similar to that used in MCMP 204, but will differ in one important respect. Formal study groups will not be assigned. Students are strongly encouraged to continue to work in study groups for purposes of study and review. Meet with your group from last semester or form a new group. Like MCMP 204, there will be less formal lecturing than found in many other university lecture courses. You will be expected to read the assignments in advance and come to class prepared to discuss them. "Discuss" can mean that you might ask a question about something you don't understand, or it can mean that you might be asked to work a problem and answer questions in class. We will typically cover in class only a small portion of the day's assignment. The rest will be your responsibility. If you have questions about the way the course will be conducted, please do not hesitate to contact us. About the Instructors This course is staffed by a two experienced instructors and a teaching assistant. Professor Donald Bergstrom is in charge of the classroom part of the course. He has been an organic chemistry instructor at Purdue since he joined the faculty in 1989 and previously taught organic and general chemistry at the University of North Dakota, the University of California, Davis, and the Rockefeller University. In addition to this course he teaches the graduate level course, MCMP 625, Grant Writing. His research is focused in the area of nucleic acid chemistry, nanomaterials and drug development. Professor David Colby is the assisting instructor. Professor Colby joined the Purdue faculty in 2008 as an assistant professor in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology. He has a Pharm. D. degree from the University of Iowa and a Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Irvine. Prior to joining the faculty at

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
