The Quest for the Cure: The Science and Stories Behind the Next Generation of Medicines
The dearth of promising new treatments for many a serious disease remains a major challenge not just for the pharmaceutical industry but for all of society. In this exhaustively researched book, Brent R. Stockwell surveys the history of drug development and offers insightful suggestions for innovative new approaches. This is critical reading for the many involved in and concerned about this urgent issue. -- Robert Bazell, chief science correspondent, NBC News, and author of Her-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer This is a terrific book! Stockwell's writing is clear and engaging as he presents a thoughtful analysis of drug development that can be understood and appreciated by a diverse readership. Stockwell beautifully combines scientific history and personal anecdotes with clear explanations of the principles and practices of chemical biology to make a fascinating story of the past, present, and future of drug discovery. His book is informative, accurate, and a good read all put together. -- Geoffrey Cooper, Boston University, author of The Cell: A Molecular Approach and Oncogenes This is a truly wonderful book. Stockwell's writing will open the door to a universe that many readers may know little about. Drugs are born, biotech companies are created, scientists' careers are made and unmade, egos are raised and dashed. This book is so readable, it is an absolute page-turner. Yet it is also authoritative and scientifically sophisticated, managing to distill a complex, changing field into a beautifully written, well-crafted story. -- Siddhartha Mukherjee, Columbia University, author of The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer By providing accessible explanations for the underlying biological and chemical principles that apply to the complex solutions he describes, Stockwell enables even the scientifically unsophisticaed reader to gain a wider perspective on what future disease treatment might entail. Publishers Weekly 4/4/2011 This very readable, even exciting work takes us through the medical breakthroughs of the past century... Globe and Mail 6/4/2011 This book deserves a readership, and there is certainly a need for it. As a drug companyresearcher, I have often wished that more people understood what the field was likeand how simultaneously fascinating and frustrating it can be. Cell 7/8/11 In this well-researched look into the complexities of making medicines, a chemical biologist gives a history of drug making an details innovative methods of drug discovery. Science News 7/30/11
