His latest position was Head of the Decision Board on Pharmaceutical Development. At present, he is working as a Consultant for Pharmaceutical and Medical Research and Development.

His scientific work was devoted to the elaboration of new pharmacological methods, pharmacology of plant extracts from various countries, pharmacology of steroid hormones, pharmacology of peptide hormones, pharmacology of cardiac glycosides, biomechanics and biochemistry of connective tissue, experimental gerontology, experimental dermatology, and development procedures for pharmaceutical products. H. Gerhard Vogel has published more than 160 papers, mainly on new pharmacological methods, on endocrinology (in particular peptide endocrinology), biomechanics and biochemistry of connective tissue, such as skin and bone, and on other topics. He is a member of many international and national scientific societies and a co-editor and contributor to several scientific textbooks.

Together with Wolfgang H. Vogel he published the first edition of Drug Discovery and Evaluation: Pharmacological Assays (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York) in 1997. The second completely revised, updated and enlarged edition with many contributions by his colleagues was published in 2002. The thirdedition of that work will appear in late 2007. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the book Drug Discovery and Evaluation: Safety and Pharmacokinetic Assays, which was published at Springer as well.

Reviews - What do customers think about Drug Discovery and Evaluation?

Well constructed and potentially useful  Sep 15, 2005
I have the 2nd edition of this reference, obtained in 2003. Springer-Verlag and their printers have done a very nice job of making this large (1400-page) book, and they provide a very readable typeset. The text is laid out in numerous short application notes describing different pharmacological assays, and these include sections on the study's purpose, a paragraph on the procedure, another on the approach to interpreting results, a fourth cursory section discussing modifications of the method by others, and a usually generous list of references after that. A big plus, I think, is the inclusion of a CD-ROM that contains an Adobe PDF of the entire text. This is a better medium in which to do searching, especially since the hardcover's printed lookup is set up in such extensive run-in indexing, with numerous cascades of indented em-dashes on subentries that it is really kind of annoying. The Contents list, grouped by organ systems, is a lot more useful.

It's still a difficult call making a decision to recommend a text like this - if you are actively doing pharmacological research, your sources are probably more current at your bench, or in recent journals and meetings. But, the very readable structure, many references, and a useful CD-ROM, suggests Vogel's text as an appealing and well-assembled package for academic and group reference.
A wonderful book for pharmacological Researchers  Jun 29, 2000
The book is a wonderful addition to books on drug evaluation. I feel pharmacologists are getting very few books on this subject. This book can end up the search for such pharmacologists. It will surely boost the research in this field. I hope that this book should reach into hands of every pharmacologists. Whether he/she is a academician or researcher, this book will be a valuable addition to his/her personal library. Each institute conducting research or teaching in pharmacology should also have this book in the library.

Many thanks to the authors and publishers of this books.
