Explore the drug discovery process using case histories in various therapeutic areas. Following an analysis of the leading prescription drugs and their physicochemical properties which ensure they are ‘drug-like’, case histories will focus on target identification and validation, design and synthesis of relevant molecules, structure activity relationships and a summary of the pharmacokinetic properties of the selected drugs. Therapeutic areas which will be discussed include antihypertensives, anxiolytics and antidepressants, anti-viral agents and antihyperlipidaemia agents and will cover both earlier drugs in the field as well as the most recent advances.
