The advancements in big pharma's use of related drug discovery research, synthetic and medicinal chemistry, and other fields during the past few decades are discussed. More enormous societal transformations, such as the computer, the internet, and globalisation, have influenced these. Thoughts on the future of medicinal chemistry are also covered, including the potential of outsourcing and sharing the costs and risks of drug discovery. Algorithm utilisation in data analysis and medication creation, as well as the ongoing effects of big data and easy access to mighty computational power, are also discussed. The communication styles of the upcoming generation of medicinal chemists will be influenced by social media, the effects of being continuously linked, and data.
