The ACS Medicinal Chemistry Letters Early Career Board is celebrating the journal’s 10-year anniversary with a collection of articles in the new Virtual Issue “Key Resources for Medicinal Chemists.”
The goal of this project is to provide a starting point of essential reading for the next generation of medicinal chemists entering the field. The target audience includes chemists joining pharma and new graduate students or postdoctoral researchers taking on a new medicinal chemistry project.
The issue includes articles from Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, ACS Chemical Neuroscience, ACS Chemical Biology, ACS Infectious Diseases, and Chemical Reviews to illustrate journal collaborations that have shaped the path of ACS Medicinal Chemistry Letters over the past 10 years.
The general topics of the articles included in the Virtual Issue include CNS drug design, drug-like properties/drug half-life, bioisosteres, biophysical data analysis, pan-assay interference compounds (PAINS), protein-protein interactions, PROTACS and topics of general relevance to medicinal chemistry.
We hope our readers enjoy this collection of resources and that it may inspire current and future students to explore the exciting field of medicinal chemistry!
