New Issue :: Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry, 16 Issue 28

Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry is a forum for the review of areas of keen and topical interest to medicinal chemists and others in the allied disciplines. Each issue is solely devoted to a specific topic, containing six to nine reviews, which provide the reader a comprehensive survey of that area. A Guest Editor who is an expert in the topic under review, will assemble each issue. The scope of Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry will cover all areas of medicinal chemistry, including current developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, compound diversity measurements, drug absorption, drug distribution, metabolism, new and emerging drug targets, natural products, pharmacogenomics, and structure-activity relationships. Medicinal chemistry is a rapidly maturing discipline. The study of how structure and function are related is absolutely essential to understanding the molecular basis of life. Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry aims to contribute to the growth of scientific knowledge and insight, and facilitate the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents to treat debilitating human disorders. The journal is essential for every medicinal chemist who wishes to be kept informed and up-to-date with the latest and most important advances.

Active free trials in the universities around the world!

University of Camerino

The University of Camerino is a university located in Camerino, Italy. The University of Camerino is the best university of Italy among those with fewer than 10,000 students, according to the Guida Censis Repubblica 2011 and 2012 ranking. It claims to have been founded in 1336 and was officially recognized by the Pope in 1727. It is organized into five faculties.

Writer and jurist Cino from Pistoia, living in Marche in the years 1319–21, and in Camerino in the spring of 1321, described the territory as teeming with law schools. Camerino became a center of learning by year 1200, offering degrees in civil law, canonical law, medicine, and literary studies. Upon the request of Gentile III da Varano, Gregory XI issued the papal edict of 29 January 1377, addressed to the municipality and to the people, authorizing Camerino to confer (after appropriate examination) bachelor and doctoral degrees with apostolic authority.

 Showa Pharmaceutical University

Showa Pharmaceutical University is a private university at Machida, Tokyo, Japan. The predecessor, Showa Women’s Pharmaceutical Junior College, was founded in 1930, and it was chartered as a university in 1949. Showa Pharmaceutical University history starts with the founding of the Showa Women’s Pharmaceutical Junior College in the year 1930. The school has been burned to the ground in bombing during World War II. However, students, faculty, and parents have always worked hand-in-hand to build the school that has been the pillar for its existence. In the year 1990 Showa Pharmaceutical University was moved from Setagaya Campus to the Machida Campus which has got its rich natural setting and cutting-edge facilities, to provide an ideal environment for pharmaceutical education and research. Showa Pharmaceutical University is enhancing its educational system and upgrading its facilities, including cooperation with a medical university and construction a new building, to make them correspond to the new six-year system. Showa Pharmaceutical University is committed to nurture pharmacists who combine a high level of expertise in pharmaceutical products with a solid sense of ethics, and a deep sensitivity for empathizing with patients. One of the major distinguishing characteristics of Showa Pharmaceutical University is the ability of all of its students to receive an education in advanced clinical pharmacy, along with training in groups of medical teams at leading university hospitals.

Ehime University Medical Library

Ehime University is a Japanese national university in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Japan. The university has one of the largest student populations in the Shikoku region. After Japan’s defeat in World War II, Aidai was established in May 1949 among many other national universities by the Japanese government during the reformation of the education system. The university originally had three Faculties: Humanities and Science, Education, and Engineering; which were consolidated from Matsuyama National High School (established 1919), Ehime Prefectural Teachers School (1876), Ehime Prefectural Youth Teachers School (1927), and Ehime Prefectural Niihama Technical School (1939). Today, the university has six faculties and five graduate schools.

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is the sixth oldest and among the most highly ranked tertiary education institutions in Greece. It is named after the philosopher Aristotle, who was born in Stageira, about 55 km east of Thessaloniki. It is the largest university in Greece and in the Balkans. Its campus covers 230,000 square metres in the centre of Thessaloniki, with additional educational and administrative facilities elsewhere. The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was founded in 1925 during the premiership of Alexandros Papanastassiou and was legislated under Law 3341/14-6-25. It was the second Greek university to be founded after the University of Athens, which was established in 1837. The university was built on top of the remains of what had once been the Jewish cemetery in Thessaloniki, until the cemetery’s tragic destruction during the Nazi occupation.

SISSA Library

The SISSA Library contains more than 22.000 books, 18.000 bound journals, all SISSA theses (Ph.D. and Magister) and currently subscribes to about 150 printed and more than 6000 online scientific journals. During the most of the year, the Library is open from 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m., and can be accessed by SISSA registered users 24 hours a day. In summer (July 1 to August 31) the Library is open from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. (Saturday and Sunday closed), but users can access it using the self-check system for loans and returns whilst the library is closed. This operation works only if library users have the appropriate library card “badge” (with photo) and if it has been registered in the SISSA library database. If users don’t have the appropriate badge they can go to the SISSA post office to receive it. Once in possession of the proper badge, users are requested to come to the SISSA library loan desk and ask librarians to add it to the SISSA database.

University of Botswana library

The University of Botswana library has been in existence since 1971 when the first thousand volumes were housed in an unused church building in the village of Gaborone. The first official building was opened in 1986, which was two stories tall and contained only five computers. In 2001, the library moved to a new building, more than tripling its size. The new main library is one of the largest university libraries in Africa with five floors.

Blog ::: Brain Changes in Young American Football Players

In recent years many studies have been conducted and reports have emerged about the risks of brain injury caused by playing physical sports and also about their impact on development of the brain in the players. However, most researches are about the changes occurring in the players’ brain as a result of concussions, but few focus specifically on players who have never experienced concussions.


In one such study the research team headed by Christopher T. Whitlow, M.D., Ph.D., M.H.A., associate professor and chief of neuroradiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., studied 25 young male football players to assess the brain changes after a season of football. Players who were chosen had no signs or symptoms of concussion. With the help of Head Impact Telemetry System (which is an advancement in MRI), data were recorded and analyzed to determine the risk weighted cumulative exposure associated with head impacts caused in a single season of play.

Using modern techniques, players’ brain images were taken before and after the season and it was revealed that there were changes in the white matter of the brains due to impacts during the games. To simplify, the research showed that the flow of water through the neural networks was not uniform. This is hard to tell if the changes are permanent right now and also what implications these changes may have. The research team suggests that time will answer how the players will have their brains function and age.
