Drug Design

  • John J. Baldwin


The discovery of drugs depends on a number of interdependent factors, including insight, serendipity, and persistence. A common characteristic of the successful program is a clearly delineated strategy based on quantitative pharmacological assays. The particular problem chosen often will influence this strategy and dictate the type of approach; that is, either a rational or an empirical one. Depending on this selection, the synthetic targets then will either be derived from drug design concepts for the former or developed around systematic variation of a lead compound for the latter.
