MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

An authoritative look at the application of chemicalbiology in drug discovery and development


Based on the award–winning Wiley Encyclopedia of ChemicalBiology published in 2008, this book explores the role ofchemical biology in drug discovery and development. The first partof the book reviews key principles and techniques used in thedesign and evaluation of drug candidates. The second partelucidates biological mechanisms of certain diseases, illuminatingapproaches to investigate and target these diseases.


Comprising carefully selected reprints from theEncyclopedia as well as new contributions from leadingscholars in the field, this book provides researchers in academiaand industry with important information to aid in the developmentof novel agents to treat disease. Self–contained articles cover avariety of essential topics, including:



  • The design, development, and optimization of drugcandidates

  • The pharmacokinetics and properties of drugs

  • Drug transport and delivery

  • Natural products and natural product models aspharmaceuticals

  • Biological mechanisms underlying health and disease

  • Treatment strategies for a range of diseases, from HIV toschizophrenia


Chemical Biology is a top–notch guide and reference foranyone working in the areas of drug discovery and development,including researchers in chemical biology and other fields such asbiochemistry, medicine, and pharmaceutical sciences.
