Medicinal Chemistry and Anti Cancer Drugs
July 19 @ 8:00 am - July 20 @ 6:00 pm
Medchem and Anti-cancer Drugs 2019 aspired to bring-forth the cutting edge technologies and the latest innovations of medicinal chemistry and rational drug design for the discovery of anti-cancer agents.
Medicinal chemistry is the chemistry discipline concerned with the design, development, and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs. The discipline combines expertise from chemistry and pharmacology to identify, develop and synthesize chemical agents that have a therapeutic use and to evaluate the properties of existing drugs. It offers a wide variety of lab opportunities in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies. Most chemists use their research skills to formulate, produce, characterize, and analyze new compounds for specific applications. However, each lab environment is unique in regards to daily activities and career opportunities.
The scope of Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry will cover all areas of medicinal chemistry, including current developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, compound diversity measurements, drug absorption, drug distribution, metabolism, new and emerging drug targets, natural products, pharmacogenomics, and structure-activity relationships.
