Colloquium On Organic And Bioorganic Chemistry on 3-5 August, 2018 @  SRIBS, Pampady, Kottayam


Organic Chemistry is a fully-grown discipline of chemistry while Bioorganic chemistry is a fast-growing chemistry discipline that combines Organic chemistry and Biochemistry. It involves the study of biological processes using chemical methods and applies the principles and techniques of Organic chemistry to address problems of biological importance and takes inspiration from biology to develop new chemical processes. Biological molecules are synthesized using methods of Organic chemistry and examined their structure and kinetics of biochemical reactions. The main focus of Bioorganic chemistry is the understanding of the underlying molecular basis of biological processes. It is closely associated with Biomimetic chemistry and with Bioinorganic chemistry and Biophysical organic chemistry when dealing with molecular recognition. 

Bioorganic chemistry is an interdisciplinary and interface subject finding wide application mainly in the area of Medicinal chemistry. Understanding the biological processes in terms of Organic chemistry paves ways to the development of new and better therapeutics for many ailments such as cancer, Alzheimers’s disease, asthma etc. The research in this area focuses on the study of enzymes, metabolic pathways, development of mechanism-based enzyme inhibitors, elucidation of mechanism and structure etc. leading to the development of new drugs.
Experts in Organic and Bioorganic chemistry will lead the lectures and will focus on the basic aspects of Organic and bioorganic chemistry starting from fundamentals to advanced levels and provides valuable insight into the challenges in this field.  
The program is intended mainly for Master students of Chemistry, research scholars in Chemistry and young faculty members of colleges/ University departments who would like to pursue research in Organic/Bioorganic chemistry.

Who can apply: MSc Chemistry, Researchers and college Teachers 

Total Seats : 60

Accommodation: Free dormitory facility will be provided for limited number of out-station participants.
