Medicinal Chemistry

Medicinal chemistry is the chemistry that is used in the discovery of new medicines.

Although the techniques of medicinal chemistry are widely employed in the drug discovery industry, many of the same principles can be applied to other problems in the chemical and life sciences. By understanding the mechanisms of drugs action, new molecules can be developed with improved pharmacological properties and reduced side effects.
