As medicinal chemistry teams evolve to become more interdisciplinary, project leaders are faced with the increasingly difficult task of coordinating research involving synthetic organic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, and pharmaceutical chemistry. Medicinal chemistry groups are being asked to move beyond the traditional focus on lead optimization and direct their efforts towards library design and drug discovery as well. As the research scope of a medicinal chemistry group increases, so increases the challenge of managing and training the personnel to perform that research.
The 2nd annual Mastering Medicinal Chemistry will continue to examine the medicinal chemistry field, re-define its role in drug discovery, address some of the bottlenecks, and highlight recent advances with case studies and success stories.
