Breakthroughs in Medicinal Chemistry: New Targets and Mechanisms, New
Drugs, New Hopes is a series of editorials which is published on a
biannual basis by the Editorial Board of the Medicinal Chemistry section
of the journal Molecules. In these
editorials, we highlight in brief reports (of about one hundred words) a
number of recently published articles that describe crucial findings,
such as the discovery of novel drug targets and mechanisms of action or
novel classes of drugs, which may inspire future medicinal chemistry
endeavors devoted to addressing prime unmet medical needs.
