Hi, first of all, I am a 3rd year bachelor student in Chemistry-Biology and I am going to choose a master's degree in order to get a thesis on a topic of interest to me (about Drug Vectorization by using Biomolecular Designs).
Actually, I am wondering if a master's degree in Bio-Organic Chemistry (containing only one molecular modelling course) would be sufficient to work on both Drug-Design & Synthesis. I thought that I could also try to do some trainings and get more skills in Drug-Design and Docking methods.
Another possibility would be to integrate an international master's degree named << In Silico Drug Design >>, which would permit me to specialize in this field. I am really interested in it and I think it would probably match more with my profile. But I am afraid that it could regret to stop definitely chemical synthesis.
Anyway, my question is : If I chose the master's degree in BioOrganic Chemistry, would it be possible to do both Modelization and Chemical Synthesis ? Concerning the Drug-Design Master, I don't think I would like to develop new drug-design methods but just to use them to create new bioactive compounds.
I hope my message was not too long and I thank anybody who would have the courage to read it, sincerely,
you can go with both.. but more emphasize on chemical synthesis.. Drug design does not take much time so you can do this with your main project..
