· Highlights changes surrounding the strategy ofdrug discovery to provide you witha comprehensive reference featuring advances in the methods involvedin lead optimization and more effective drug discovery
· Includes a new chapter on data-driven drug discoveryin terms of the optimal design of pharmacologicalexperiments to identify mechanism of action of new molecules
· Illustrates the application of rapidinexpensive assays to predict activity in the therapeutic setting, showing dataoutcomes and the limitations inherentin interpreting this data
A Pharmacology Primer: Techniques for MoreEffective and Strategic Drug Discovery,4th Edition features the latest ideas and research about theapplication of pharmacology to the process of drug discovery to equip readers with a deeper understanding of the complex and rapid changes in this field. Writtenby well-respected pharmacologist, Terry P. Kenakin,this primer is anindispensable resource for all thoseinvolved in drug discovery. This edition has been thoroughly revised to include material on data-driven drug discovery,biased signaling,structure-based drugdesign, drug activityscreening, drug development(including pharmacokineticsand safety Pharmacology),and much more. With more color illustrations, examples,and exercises throughout, this book remains a top reference for all industry and academic scientists and students directly involved in drug discovery, or pharmacologic research.
Industry, academic and regulatory scientists involved in drug discovery or pharmacologic research, medicinal chemists and industrial chemists; graduate and post-doctoral students in pharmacology and pharmaceuticalscience programs
