SLAS2015 Short Courses

Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Drug Discovery

This course is designed to equip biologists and chemists with an understanding of the principles of pharmacology as applied to the drug discovery process. Specifically, the two days will center on Pharmacokinetics (day 1) and Pharmacodynamics (day 2). This can be considered as being loosely based on the dose-response relationship as knowledge of both of these variables are needed in the assessment of therapeutic value.
