Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Based on the award-winning Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology published in 2008, this book explores the role of chemical biology in drug discovery and development. The first part of the book reviews key principles and techniques used in the design and evaluation of drug candidates. The second part elucidates biological mechanisms of certain diseases, illuminating approaches to investigate and target these diseases.

Comprising carefully selected reprints from the Encyclopedia as well as new contributions from leading scholars in the field, this book provides researchers in academia and industry with important information to aid in the development of novel agents to treat disease. Self-contained articles cover a variety of essential topics, including:

  • The design, development, and optimization of drug candidates
  • The pharmacokinetics and properties of drugs
  • Drug transport and delivery
  • Natural products and natural product models as pharmaceuticals
  • Biological mechanisms underlying health and disease
  • Treatment strategies for a range of diseases, from HIV to schizophrenia

Chemical Biology is a top-notch guide and reference for anyone working in the areas of drug discovery and development, including researchers in chemical biology and other fields such as biochemistry, medicine, and pharmaceutical sciences.

Synopsis:

Based on the award winning Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology, this book comprises 22 carefully selected reprints, as well as new contributions from leading scholars in the field, providing a fairly general overview of the role of chemical biology in drug discovery and development and in understanding biological mechanisms of common diseases.

Part I of the book focuses on the role of chemical biology in drug discovery and drug development, computational approaches, design and selection of small molecule inhibitors, lead optimization, and pharmacokinetics of drug candidates.

Part II discusses the role of chemical biology in elucidating biological mechanisms and in treating disease including HIV, allergy and asthma, osteoarthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, anxiety disorder, depression, schizophrenia, and more.
