BOC SCIENCES ESTABLISHES A MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY BRANCH FOR DRUG DISCOVERY
The global leading chemical company BOC Sciences announced to establish a medicinal chemistry branch, which is specially designed to support scientists’ needs arising from drug discovery efforts, covering nearly the whole process of a drug discovery project from lead discovery all the way to formulation issues. Medicinal chemistry is an integrated discipline which links many scientific fields in new drug research and development. In other words, in this process medicinal chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of synthesizing new pharmaceuticals. Different procedures like the design, optimization and development of chemical compounds are involved. In most cases, it begins with the synthesis of potential drugs and is followed by studies investigating their interactions with biological targets so as to understand the medicinal effects of the drug, its metabolism and side-effects.
“In this field, chemists who focus on drug R&D are also concerned with the isolation of medicinal agents found in plants, as well as the creation of new synthetic drug compounds. Our chemists work in a team full of pharmacologists, theoretical chemists, biologists, toxicologists, microbiologists.
