Drug discovery is a constantly developing and expanding area of research. Developed to provide a comprehensive guide, the Handbook of Medicinal Chemistry covers the past, present and future of the entire drug development process. Highlighting the recent successes and failures, the book will help readers to understand the factors governing modern drug discovery from the initial concept through to translational science and intellectual property. Each chapter includes expert advice to not only provide a rigorous understanding of the principles being discussed, but to provide useful hints and tips gained from within the pharmaceutical industry to enable medicinal chemists to fully understand the entire drug discovery process and every area in which medicinal chemists are critically involved. This expert advice, combined with project case studies, highlighting and discussing all areas of successful projects, make this an essential handbook for all those involved in pharmaceutical development.
Andrew Davis read Chemistry at Imperial College of Science and Technology and then completed a PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry with Professor MI Page at the University of Huddersfield.
