Molecular Biopharmaceutics focuses on describing the interplay between the chemistry of drug molecules and membrane transporters. The book guides researchers in setting up experiments that help in understanding the mechanisms and kinetics involved in drug absorption, transport and delivery.

Starting with an introduction to the topic, it then considers the following:
  • physico-chemical characterization of drug candidates
  • membrane transport of drug candidates
  • describing and predicting bioavailability.

Molecular Biopharmaceutics covers a complex and developing academic scientific area, comprehensively encapsulating the essentials of the topic. It is also of increasing importance in drug development.

The book will be an invaluable resource for postgraduate pharmaceutical science students, biopharmaceutical scholars, scientist within academia and pharmaceutical scientists.
