Where Does a Value Chain Start?

Recommended Posts

We often get asked the question, "where does a value chain start?". This thread focuses on this subject.

If you're the CEO of a C+H business and you are primarily oriented to the creation, marketing of sales of Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), then you have a number of product creation and new drug discovery options for creating a new product.

If you have a product marketing function, then you'd probably like to have this function define the need for a new product, one that may fill a hole in your product portfolio. However, if your firm employs organic chemists you may prefer that Product Marketing and Product Research functions team up in the definition of product requirements and in the product compound chemistry research that needs to explore the requirements and discover promising product areas.

Thus, the value chain for new drug discovery and commercialization focuses, or leverages, tools such as molecular modeling software. There are new drug discovery solutions which help to categorize chemical compound characteristics and reactions across the spectrum of Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, and Toxicity (ADMET) such as an ADMET predictor.

Other chemist areas of new drug discovery include chemical simulators, QSAR model building, R-Table generation and analysis, data visualizations, de novo design, and CYP metabolite prediction.

If you're looking to embark on a new career and chemistry is of interest, then you will, most likely be working with top-rated software which aids in modeling molecular geometries such as theses tools and applications...

  • ChemDoodle
  • HyperCube
  • Avogadro
  • Chem Axon
  • Biovia Draw
  • MolView
  • ACD/ChemSketch
  • Schrodinger
  • Simulations Plus MedChem Designer
  • Simulations Plus ADMET Predictor

If you're already in this line of new drug discovery, then we'd like to hear from you on the nature of your work and who makes a great research guru!
