How can we discover potential targets? How can we test human-derived therapeutics in animals? Are current laws sufficient to regulate innovative therapies? What is needed to get advanced therapies from bench to bedside? In this course we will cover these topics in an interactive manner combining lectures, discussions, and workshops. All steps in the drug life cycle will be discussed.

In this course we will discuss all aspects of the drug life cycle and how these aspects influence the medicine of the future. From the discovery of suitable drug targets to the development of the actual drug, From delivery to quality control.
