Leading-edge research and technologies that facilitate drug discovery
This definitive compilation of information on current drug discovery research reviews?some of the most important topics in post-genomic?biomedical and biopharmaceutical science, such as pharmacogenomics, structure-based drug design, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, cancer biology, neuroscience, bio-nanotechnology, and stem cell research.
Including a Foreword by the late Nobel laureate Paul C. Lauterbur, and with contributions from seventy scholars and researchers from around the world, this book incorporates a general introduction to and practical examples of some of the many methods and techniques for the research of biopharmaceutical discovery in the post-genomic era. The contributors include experts in chemistry, structural biology, computation, biology, and medicine who have a common interest in translating research discoveries into new human therapies. In addition to exploring recent advances, they share their perspectives on various aspects of drug discovery research in the future.
Drug Discovery Research: New Frontiers in the Post-Genomic Era is a hands-on resource for practitioners and researchers in the pharmaceutical field and related industries, as well as a valuable reference for students in pharmaceutical science, chemistry, biology, biophysics, bioengineering, pharmacy, and medicine.
