Chemical Sciences

Overview

The Chemical Sciences (CS) Program at Chulabhorn Graduate Institute (CGI) encompasses the field of Organic Chemistry (OC) and the emerging field of Chemical Biology (CB). Traditionally, organic chemistry has been a driving force for the discovery of new biologically active compounds which could lead to the development of medicines. The field has had immense roles in the existence of many important drugs in the market today when integrated with medicinal chemistry. The field of chemical biology employs organic chemistry as the utmost important tool in understanding biology of diseases and disease states with more depth and breadth in order to understand the causes and development of these diseases from the viewpoint of organic chemistry. A disease well-understood will more likely lead to cure. Therefore, the synergistic collaboration between these two fields will help in significantly advancing the drug discovery process. Students equipped with the knowledge in both disciplines will be well-versed and will be in high demand for the future of new medicinal technology.
