Small Molecule Drug Discovery Primer 201

Small Molecule Drug Discovery Primer 201 builds upon the foundational knowledge from Small Molecule Drug Discovery Primer 101. This class takes a deep dive into early screening techniques, including discovery platforms, high-throughput screening, and novel target identification. It breaks down the strategies used for lead optimization, along with drug design methodology and approaches. Uncover the crucial criteria for transitioning from discovery to development, including how to rigorously evaluate data from in silico, in vitro, and in vivo assets. Join Small Molecule Drug Discovery Primer 201 and continue to increase your pharmaceutical research knowledge!
