Comprehensive Medicinal Chemistry II book cover

Comprehensive Medicinal Chemistry II


Reviews the important technologies used in each step of the drug discovery process; target search, target validation, informatics and databases, structural biology, screening, chemical technologies, and lead search and optimization. Chemists, medicinal chemists and biologists present clear examinations of each step to help scientists understand the underlying techniques, problems and solutions encountered in finding a drug target and methods used to test and improve their properties.


For students and researchers in chemistry, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry and pharmacology and scientists working in the pharmaceutical industries.
