In the current pandemic scenario, publication process of all articles related to Coronavirus will be expedited, for timely publication of much needed research

Aims & Scope

Infectious Disorders - Drug Targets aims to cover all the latest and outstanding developments in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, genomics and biochemistry of contemporary molecular targets involved in infectious disorders e.g. disease specific proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes. Each issue of the journal contains a series of timely in-depth reviews/mini-reviews and research articles written by leaders in the field covering a range of current topics on drug targets involved in infectious disorders. As the discovery, identification, characterization and validation of novel human drug targets for anti-infective drug discovery continue to grow, this journal will be essential reading for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug design, discovery and development.
