Medicinal Chemistry Conferences

Medicinal chemistry is the science of drugs and pharmaceutical therapies. It includes the preparation and study of small molecules, substances, and macromolecules, of both natural and synthetic origin, that can be used to cure or ameliorate a disease condition. Medicinal chemistry draws from natural products chemistry, organic and inorganic synthesis, molecular modeling, and chemoinformatics, and blends in contributions from the related fields of biochemistry, physiology, enzymology, rheology, metabolism, and many others. The medicinal chemistry process begins with the discovery of a "hit" or a "lead", an initial molecule or substance that exhibits a desirable effect in response to a specific disease indication. Then begins a process of optimization in which the molecule or substance is modified methodically to determine which changes improve the activity, and in parallel to examine the properties of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination (ADME) that define how the molecule or substance behaves in the organism. Related to the drug activity is the mode of administration, and the science and art of formulation is employed to ensure that the molecule or substance is stable prior to use, and then is incorporated into the organism in the most beneficial manner.
