Process Chemistry in the Pharmaceutical Industry: Key Concepts and Selected Examples

Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium
3:00 pm

Richard Fox
Bristol-Myers Squibb

Pharmaceutical R&D chemistry is typically divided into two phases.  In the early drug discovery phase, medicinal chemistry is conducted to design and synthesize molecules on small scale.  Once a lead structure is selected from the large number of compounds prepared, R&D activities transition to the process chemistry phase which is concerned with the development and optimization of both the synthetic route and  individual procedures to enable large-scale production of the lead compound.  In this seminar, key concepts of process chemistry will be introduced, and selected examples of process chemistry from the Bristol-Myers Squibb portfolio will be discussed.
