Drug Discovery, Introduction


This introductory course provides a framework for understanding the process of drug discovery, from target selection and validation to lead optimization and preclinical studies. Although the fundamental principles of drug discovery are well established, the tools, technologies and methods used in the discovery and development of safe and effective drugs are constantly evolving. Personalized medicine and novel diagnostics involving biomarkers, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics in clinical practice are changing the landscape of drug discovery.
