Training in Drug Discovery

Training in Drug Discovery

Collaboration between the CCTS and the Alabama Drug Discovery Alliance (ADDA) provides the foundation for a selection of training activities in basic and intermediate Drug Discovery and Development.

The 2013 lecture series about drug discovery began Thursday, October 17th at noon in the PCAMS building (main room on ground level).  A light lunch will be served at each lecture; no registration is required.  See the flyer below or follow the CCTS calendar for dates.

View Dr Maaike Everts slides from Intro to Drug Discovery or Mark Suto's slides on Target Druggability.

As a general introduction, the ADDA/CCTS partnership offers a series of 9 one-hour lectures that cover basic topics including what makes a target druggable, assay development, high throughput screening, medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics, basics of clinical trials, intellectual property, and regulatory issues in drug development.
