“How to make drugs more efficiently: Insights from organic chemistry” by Dr. Thomas Montgomery (Univ. of Penna.)
The introduction of antibiotics and chemotherapy has revolutionized medicine, turning fatal diseases into treatable conditions. However, with the increase in antibiotic resistance and the undesirable side effects of chemotherapy, the need for new and more effective medicines remains a major concern. In order to address this need, a core avenue of research is the development of new chemical tools to create the medicines of tomorrow.
