Drug Discovery Lunch & Learn: Creating Small Molecule Strategies for Therapeutic Success
April 6 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm
The drug discovery process is complicated, difficult, and lengthy. In an effort to identify pre-clinical candidates quickly, many discovery research programs try to save time by rushing through the hit-to-lead and lead optimization process without considering all the challenges which may impact a successful progression to the clinic. This can result in costly failures during pre-clinical or clinical development.
The ideal novel candidate has the attributes of high potency, low side effects, good exposure to the target tissue, ease of dosing, and low-cost manufacturing. During this lunchtime seminar, we will share the following:
- Latest avenues of early drug discovery
- Strategies for candidate evaluation
- Selection of lead drug candidates
- Potential development strategies toward clinical success
