Aims & Scope

Encyclopedia of Molecular Pharmacology

Encyclopedia of Molecular Pharmacology provides rapid access to focused information on molecular pharmacology for research scientists, clinicians and advanced students. It combines the knowledge of classic pharmacology describing drug action as well as the more recent approach of the precise analysis of the molecular mechanisms by which drugs exert their effects.

The Encyclopedia adopts an easy-to-use A-Z format that easily identifies entries for basic concepts and permits easy searches through an extensive cross referencing system. These authoritative entries are well structured and written by well-known authors, providing a complete reference to the area of molecular pharmacology.

Short keyword entries define common acronyms, terms and phrases. In addition, detailed essays provide in-depth information on drugs, cellular processes, molecular targets, techniques, molecular mechanisms, and general principles.
