This book presents a summary of the ways mass spectrometry is used in various stages of drug discovery and development including early support of medicinal chemistry, drug metabolism studies, distribution, degradation, and various development assays. The book includes a balance of basic and advanced information. Specific chapters relate to various stages in the process (e.g., discovery) as well as chapters on topics of current interest (lipidomics and SiRNA) are covered. Other topics covered include: MS metabolite identification techniques in drug discovery and drug development; Analysis of biological drugs, proteins and peptides; Analysis of drug impurities and degradants; Applications for biomarker discovery and analysis; Applications to support medicinal chemists; and Mass spectrometry for lipidomics applications

Author Biography

WALTER A. KORFMACHER, PhD, is Director of Bioanalysis at Genzyme, a Sanofi company, and Associate Editor at the Journal of Mass Spectrometry. Previously, he held positions at the FDA's National Center for Toxicological Research, Schering-Plough Research Institute, Merck Research Laboratories, and Medpace Bioanalytical Laboratories. Dr. Korfmacher is an international leader in developing mass spectrometry techniques and strategies for new drug discovery and drug metabolism applications. A 2009 recipient of the CPSA Distinguished Analytical Scientist Award, he has published more than 150 articles in the scientific literature and made more than eighty presentations at various scientific forums.
