Become part of the process of developing, improving, and increasing the efficiency of medicine
Drug discovery is the field in which new candidate drugs are developed to treat specific diseases and in specific areas of the body.
Central to drug discovery is finding a target (often a protein) for the pharmaceutical drugs as well as screening of compound libraries in order to discover new candidates. Additionally, the design and the optimisation towards identifying the final drug are essential components of the process.
Centring molecules and macromolecules
Pharmaceutical drugs that already exist can also be improved upon. When medicines are further developed, the aim is to make the drugs in question even more active and specific, reducing side effects and possibly smaller dosages with equal effects.
Pharmaceutical drugs can consist of both small molecules or macromolecules such as peptides and proteins. Postgraduate education and courses in this field focuses on both categories and provides you with the skills to improve and develop new drug products.
