About this item

Managing the Drug Discovery Process: How to Make It More Efficient and Cost-Effective thoroughly examines the current state of pharmaceutical research and development (R&D) from research, development, and business perspectives. Since drug research can be a high-risk, high-payoff industry, it is important for researchers to effectively and strategically manage the drug discovery process.

This book takes a closer look at increasing pre-approval costs for new drugs and examines not only why these increases occur, but also how they can be overcome to ensure a robust pharmacoeconomic future. The book also considers the interplay of stakeholders, consumers, and the drug firm with attendant factors, including those that are technical, legal, economic, demographic, political, social, ecological, and infrastructural. Aimed at redirecting the drug discovery process to make it more efficient and cost-effective, this book is a valuable and compelling resource for researchers and postgraduate students in academia and the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Considers drug discovery in multiple R&D venues, including big pharma, large biotech, start-up ventures, academia, and nonprofit research institutes
  • Analyzes the organization of pharmaceutical R&D, taking into account human resources considerations like recruitment and configuration, management of discovery and development processes, and the coordination of internal research within, and beyond, the organization, including outsourced work
  • Presents a consistent, well-connected, and logical dialogue that readers will find both comprehensive and approachable
