Introduction to Drug Discovery Research


This course deals with various aspects of the drug discovery process including target identification, medicinal chemistry, in vitro and in vivo drug screening methods, pharmacokinetics, drug safety, and intellectual property management. While the main focus of the course is centered on small molecule-based drugs, one lecture covers the principles of biologics-based drugs given the increasing interests in this area. The last two lectures are devoted to case studies in which discovery of particular drugs will be discussed in detail to provide further insights into the process of drug discovery research. Each lecture is given by an expert on that respective subject with many years of drug … Continue reading
