Medicinal chemistry is a chemistry-based discipline, involving aspects of biological, medical and pharmaceutical sciences. It involves the application of chemical research techniques to the synthesis of pharmaceuticals. Medicinal chemistry is almost always geared toward drug discovery and development.
Medicinal chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of designing and synthesizing new pharmaceutical candidates. Medicinal chemists who are engaged in drug discovery are part of interdisciplinary teams. Understand not only the field of organic chemistry, but also a range of other disciplines to anticipate problems and interpret developments to help move the project forward.
