Undergraduate pharmacy students quickly single out what subjects they perceive as being the most important from a pharmacy practice perspective. Pharmaceutical chemistry does not usually end up in this category. We have recently been attempting to further address students’ perceptions and attitudes to pharmaceutical chemistry by making the subject as relevant as possible in their undergraduate programme and to their future career. A poster which displays the structure, physicochemical properties and clinical target of the commonly approved drug substances of major drug classes could be a useful teaching aid and increase the students understanding of the relevance of pharmaceutical chemistry to their immediate pharmacy studies and future careers. This poster presents, in tabular format, of the most commonly used drugs approved worldwide for the treatment of cancer. The poster would be of relevance not just for pharmaceutical chemistry lecturers, but to all staff teaching cancerrelated material to pharmacy undergraduates. Similar posters could also be developed for other major drug classes.
