At a time when pharmaceutical companies have limited resources to develop newer and better drugs, they must continually evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of their research and development process. This volume focuses on how to increase the efficiency of drug discovery and development. Written by experienced discovery scientists from diverse disciplines, including chemistry, drug metabolism, and development sciences, it details in silico, in vitro, and in vivo tools for prediction, measurement, and application of compound properties to select and improve potential drug candidates.
