Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group

Understanding drug action at the frontiers of modern drug design

biochemical-pharmacology-discussion-group

Developing effective new drugs relies upon a deep understanding of how these chemical compounds act in isolation and in the context of the multi-faceted systems within the human body.

The Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group advances our fundamental knowledge of the activity and metabolism of both small molecules and biologics at the biochemical and molecular levels. Research spans chemotherapy, neuropharmacology, antimicrobials, inflammation, and immunopharmacology, as well as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and endocrine pharmacology and toxicology.

The group also serves as the Biochemical Topical Group for the American Chemical Society's New York Chapter.



Did you know it takes an average of 12 years for a drug to travel from lab to patient? Research and development of a single successful drug costs an estimated $2.6 billion.
