We are entering a new era of medicine in which designer drugs, gene therapy, and nutraceutics will be used to prevent, treat, and cure disease. At the basis of all disease, including cardiovascular, cancer, viral, and bacterial, are cellular and ultimately molecular mechanisms, that can be understood and modified to control and possibly cure the disease. As our understanding and treatment of disease becomes increasingly molecular, a knowledge of chemistry becomes even more important. This web site will help you understand the role of chemistry in the development, pathology, and treatments of these diseases. Select any of them (by clicking cardiovascular, cancer, bacterial, or viral)to get an overview of the disease, and how specific topics in chemistry and nutrition are essential to its understanding and treatment.
NOTE: THE CV, CANCER, BACTERIAL, AND VIRAL PAGES REACHED FROM HERE ARE PROTOTYPES AND ARE NOT DEVELOPED. ONLY THE OVERVIEW LINKS ON THOSE PAGES ARE OPERATIONAL.
