Exciting new opportunities for chemical intervention in disease have emerged based on a greater understanding of the molecular aspects of disease progression.
Cancer drug discovery combines the expertise of medicinal chemists required in translating the understanding of the molecular aspects of disease progression to the identification of suitable chemical entities, and the process of optimisation that ultimately leads to the discovery of new medicines.
Opportunities to learn the latest innovations in cancer drug discovery are provided, including computer-aided drug design and techniques in parallel synthesis, as well as electronic data management.
