About the Author

Eugene H. Cordes previously served as Vice President of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Research Laboratories of Merck and Company and as President of Research and Development at Sterling Winthrop Pharmaceuticals Inc. During his career, he received awards for his classroom instruction at both Indiana University and the University of Michigan. He is the author of The Tao of Chemistry and Life (OUP 2009) and several biochemistry textbooks.


This is a remarkable book... At a time when the business models for modern a pharma are being challenged, this book reminds us of the heroes in the research trenches behind the science of drug discovery. The book is arranged as a compendium of vignettes, each centered around a particular medicinal chemistry puzzle, highlighting some of the most transformative discoveries for human health in modern medicine, particularly the life-saving development of effective HIV-protease inhibitors for HIV-AIDS, the understanding and chemical conquest of Taxol and its cousins for treating metastatic cancers, and the recent development of efficacious drugs for hepatitis C. Hallelujah Moments distinguishes itself in its ability to communicate the human side of the science, the daredevil nature of drug discovery (there are so many trap doors along the way), and the science itself, in ever-increasing doses. * David Berkowitz, University of Nebraska-Lincoln *
