Summary

This first systematic treatment of the concept and practice of scaffold hopping shows the tricks of the trade and provides invaluable guidance for the reader's own projects.
The first section serves as an introduction to the topic by describing the concept of scaffolds, their discovery, diversity and representation, and their importance for finding new chemical entities. The following parts contain a general description as well as case studies of the most common tools and methods for scaffold hopping, whether topological, shape-based or structure-based. The final part contains three fully documented real-world examples of successful drug development projects by scaffold hopping that illustrate the benefits of the approach for medicinal chemistry.
While most of the case studies are taken from medicinal chemistry, chemical and structural biologists will also benefit greatly from the insights presented here.

Author Biography

Nathan Brown is the Head of the In Silico Medicinal Chemistry Group within the Cancer Therapeutics Unit at The Institute of Cancer Research in Sutton (UK). He conducted his doctoral research with Prof. Peter Willett at the University of Sheffield, before moving to Amsterdam (The Netherlands) for a Marie Curie fellowship in collaboration with Prof. Johann Gasteiger. This was followed by a Presidential fellowship at Novartis in Basel (Switzerland). Dr. Brown has published in a wide range of areas of computational chemistry, most notably de novo design and molecular descriptors.
