Molecules And Medicine This book is appropriate for a broad readership, starting with curious and thoughtful college undergraduates and reaching beyond to professors and researchers in the life sciences, chemistry, and medicine. This book provides, for the first time ever, a completely integrated look at chemistry, biology, drug discovery, and medicine. Molecules and Medicine delves into the discovery, application, and mode of action of more than one hundred of the most significant molecules now in use in modern medicine. Molecule structures and shapes are shown for all of these medicines. The opening sections of the book provide a unique, clear, and concise introduction which enables the reader to understand chemical formulas.
