The average person in the UK will take more than 14,000 pills over the course of their life, yet few people consider the long road of development that has made that drug work without being toxic. An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry presents the field in an engaging style that is very accessible to students.

Medicinal chemistry is a fast-moving field whose continuous new developments have far-reaching implications for world health. As such, this text presents a complete course in medicinal chemistry, from first principles of drug action, to design and development, to specific drugs from HIV inhibitors to painkillers.

The book builds on the history of drug development, but does not assume much background knowledge. The focus is on building upon the understandings of the molecular function of drugs, and from there, taking a broad overview of the topical issues and most frequently used techniques.

An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry remains a leading text for the growing number of medicinal chemistry courses internationally, especially as modules in medical chemistry become a more popular option on chemistry courses. With enhanced attention to the pedagogical details such as key points and boxes, as well as having specific case studies highlighted in distinct sections, Patrick's new edition enables a full understanding of the subject and a clear idea of where the field is heading.

About the Author:


Graham Patrick is a lecturer in Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry at the University of the West of Scotland, Paisley. He is the author of four other undergraduate textbooks covering medicinal chemistry and organic chemistry.

Review:

"Patrick's 3rd edition was a fantastic teaching aid at both BSc, MSc level and for postgraduates in medicinal chemistry. The 4th edition promises to be even better with the addition of en vogue areas of medicinal chemistry including protein-protein interactions and case studies of important
blockbuster drugs. A fantastic achievement."
John Spencer, University of Greenwich

"Overall organisation is improved over the previous edition, and there is a logical progression from general concepts and history to specific therapeutic areas. There is good coverage of recent developments and the case studies are a very good addition as students find that going through case
studies is an effective way of learning the principles of medicinal chemistry"
A. Ganesan, University of Southampton

Review from previous edition "Patrick provides a useful and comprehensive introduction to Medicinal Chemistry. It is appropriate for undergraduate level teaching, but also a valuable resource at a more advanced level. The main strength of the book is the breadth of material covered and the
accessibility in which the material is presented."
Gerd Wagner, University of East Anglia

Review from previous edition "Medicinal Chemistry is excellent-- the best available for undergraduate teaching. Graham is a superb teacher and it shows in the very user-friendly style of the text."
Colin Fishwick, University of Leeds
