Introduction to Drug Discovery – From Idea to Clinical Candidate


Science-based professionals: biologists, molecular biologists, chemists, preclinical development scientists, informaticians, patent attorneys, project managers and general managers.


A one day course.


This course is a ‘one-stop-shop’ outlining the major scientific tools and steps of drug discovery, namely: Drug Discovery Biology, ADMET/PK/PD, Medicinal Chemistry, Informatics/Virtual technologies together with their phasing and integration over time to generate a drug suitable for clinical trials. Focus is on small molecule drugs with comparisons made with biologics. 

Based on real-world experience and practical realities, attendees travel step-by-step along the typical path, namely: Initiating Idea -> Drug Target Protein Selection -> Lead Identification -> Clinical Candidate Nomination. 

Essential related topics include: drug discovery technology platforms, drug structural - functional quality attributes and useful project management tools such as the Target Product Profile (TPP). Key technology and infrastructure requirements are also covered in the course.
