Discovery and Development of Medicines

Get an overview of drug discovery, drug development, and the fundamentals of the major implicated disciplines.


People involved in the development of medicines have diverse educational backgrounds. Often their basic academic educations have not touched upon all phases of the drug discovery and development. This course aims to convey knowledge of drug discovery and development in general to the participants so they may communicate across the different fields of the process.

You will be faced with real examples from the industry and discuss problems and opportunities throughout the entire drug discovery and development process. Participants will be able to convey an understanding of the dynamics of the drug development process, communicate and cooperate across research fields as well as identifying critical factors and bottlenecks that influence the discovery and development of medicines.
