Medicinal Chemistry: A Look at How Drugs Are Discovered is written for those who are interested in learning how drugs are discovered. Compared to other books on the market, this text takes a different approach by presenting the subject on chemical reaction mechanism terms, which ideally makes the subject matter more interesting and easier to comprehend. The authors describe the drug discovery process, from advancing an initial lead to the approval process, and include drug discovery sources.
- Explains medicinal chemistry on chemical mechanism terms, allowing for a more interesting and easier to comprehend text
- Includes valuable insights toward the various pathways taken at pharmaceutical industries in drug discoveries
- Improved by including questions raised and suggestions made from students in the authors’ medicinal chemistry classes
This book will benefit both upper level undergraduates and graduates studying in the fields of medicinal chemistry and drug discovery, as well as scientists working in the pharmaceutical industry.
'The quality of this book is excellent. Explanations of the medicinal chemistry of drugs and their mechanisms assist in creating a visual image of what is occurring at a microscopic level. The book is very easy to comprehend.'
