Drug Discovery and Medicinal Chemistry
Medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry are disciplines at the connection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological subjects, where they are involved with design, chemical synthesis and development for market of pharmaceutical agents. Medicinal chemist combines complete knowledge of the synthetic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and biology literature with the ability to drive the project forward. It is characteristically a multidisciplinary topic — beginning with the synthesis of potential drugs followed by studies investigating their interactions with biological targets to understand the medicinal effects of the drug, its metabolism and side-effects.
