Molecular Chemistry in Drug Design and Development -special issue

Amidst the recent pandemic, there has been a lot of talk about the role of chemistry in handling the outbreak. A sudden surge of information on various aspects of Molecular chemistry in drug design and development for various infectious diseases has ignited curiosity and awareness among the common people about the role and scope of molecular chemistry.

The Amity Institute of Click Chemistry Research and Studies, Amity University, Noida ( hosted a 2-day International Conference on “Role of Molecular Chemistry in Drug Design and Development” with aim towards a global collaboration between scientists, research scholars and students working on various aspects of Chemistry and drug design and discovery from different research organizations, medical institutions, NGOs, and reputed Universities, to share their ideas and discuss the solutions. The selected full-length articles from speakers, participants and other scholars will be published in special thematic issue.

This special issue is meant to cover the various aspects of emerging infectious diseases, problems, and molecular chemistry approaches as a type of solutions to deal with possible diseases of future. It will bring together the knowledge of the paradigms of designing and development of medicines according to the current infectious diseases and the recent researches related to this area. It also aims to explore the role of new molecules or new role of available molecules or drugs and the challenges in drug development against the infectious agents. The special issue will include articles on recent therapeutic and diagnostic tools in tackling infections, developments and challenges in Molecular drug design, In-silico Methods for Drug Design and Discovery, importance of Click Chemistry for medicine, Computer-Aided Drug Design, vaccine and immunity, Advance synthesis in drug discovery as well as Chemistry-Biology interface with emphasis on most recent research findings.

Bio-inspired nanomaterial-based methods for drug and gene delivery

Special issue on Drug Delivery and Gene Delivery
Lead 20 Program

Even with the recent rapid developments in drug discovery and gene-editing platforms, the delivery remained the bottleneck in their application. Biocompatible, non-toxic, tunable, and sustainable delivery methods will define the trajectory and success rate of many therapeutic outcomes. In this special issue, we will focus on recent progress in the area of bio-inspired nanomaterial-based methods for drug and gene delivery.
