Objective To explore the technologies that will drive drug development over the next 10 to 15 years. Aims

  • To understand the role of structural genomics in generating and testing small molecule inhibitors
  • To appreciate the importance of epigenetics as a target for drug discovery
  • To recognise the role of stem cells in therapeutics, drug safety pharmacology, and drug discovery
  • To appreciate the use of biomarkers in guiding therapy
  • To understand the importance of allosteric drug binding sites for novel drug development
  • To describe trans-institute approaches to drug development for neurological diseases, using the NIMH as an example.
