Current Computer-Aided Drug Design aims to publish all the latest developments in drug design based on computational techniques. The field of computer-aided drug design has had extensive impact in the area of drug design.
Current Computer-Aided Drug Design is an essential journal for all medicinal chemists who wish to be kept informed and up-to-date with all the latest and important developments in computer-aided methodologies and their applications in drug discovery. Each issue contains a series of timely, in-depth reviews/mini-reviews, original research articles and letter articles written by leaders in the field, covering a range of computational techniques for drug design, screening, ADME studies, theoretical chemistry; computational chemistry; computer and molecular graphics; molecular modeling; protein engineering; drug design; expert systems; general structure-property relationships; molecular dynamics; chemical database development and usage etc., providing excellent rationales for drug development.
Dr. Subhash C. Basak, a Senior Scientist and Adjunct Professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, has more than 40 years of experience in mathematical /computational chemistry and computer aided drug design. His research areas include: Development of novel topological Indices; hierarchical quantitative structure-activity relationship (HiQSAR); quantitative molecular similarity analysis (QMSA); tailored QMSA; descriptors of DNA/ RNA sequences; mathematical proteomics; chirality indices of chemicals; differential QSAR; mathematical nanotoxicoproteomics. He holds a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Calcutta. Dr. Basak has published 268 research articles and has co-edited two books: 1) Advances in Mathematical Chemistry and Applications (Elsevier & Bentham) and 2) Statistical and Machine Learning Approaches for Network Analysis (Wiley). He is a member of the International Academy of Mathematical Chemistry.
