Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Scott J Weir, PharmD, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a book for pharmaceutical and medical related sciences programs in the U.K. The first edition was published in 1993.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate its readers on drug discovery and development. The book is broken down into four appropriate sections or parts: research and development, medical, regulatory, and pharmacoeconomics.
Audience: It is written for students, either in medicine or pharmaceutical sciences, pursuing advanced degrees. There are many contributing authors to this text book.
Features: The structure and content of the book is at an appropriate level. I found the U.K. perspectives helpful, but wonder whether U.S. students may be turned off a bit by the European viewpoint.
Assessment: The quality of the book is fine. It is written at a pretty high level, more for students than experts in the field of drug discovery and development.
