Course Introduction

This course is a stand-alone course that will develop your expertise in multidisciplinary drug discovery research. It will also provide a deep understanding of the current global state of drug discovery together with radical insights into future directions from leaders in the field. You will graduate from the course with a solid knowledge of the drug discovery process, from emerging technologies and drug target selection through to clinical trials and regulatory aspects. You will also be challenged to develop your own ideas on how to focus academic and industrial research to meet the pressing challenges of drug discovery. At its conclusion, you are expected to be ideally placed to apply your knowledge in industry or to undertake doctoral studies in multidisciplinary drug discovery. You will be assessed on your ability to organise the presentation in a logical manner, the use of clear PowerPoint slides, the clarity of the presentation and its scientific content.
