How to discover new medicines? Our speaker, Israel Ramos, will give a practical overview about how to design and run early drug discovery programs. Such programs start from target discovery and end with the selection of a drug candidate —a small molecule ready to enter pre-clinical phases.

Israel will also provide practical tips on how to design and perform a screening cascade for your targets, following pharmaceutical industry standards, and will also introduce IRB Barcelona’s Guidelines on Drug Discovery.

The last part of the session will be focus on giving you an overview about small molecule screenings and technologies used to run assays in a high-throughput format. Please let him know your target family in advance (please send non-confidential information) and he will provide you with tailor-made solutions on the day of the seminar.

If you want to find out how to run a screening assay for your target and design critical paths to advance your compounds, this workshop is for you!

Key points addressed during the talk:

  • Drug discovery and screening design.
  • Screening cascade and Critical Path.
  • Go / No go decisions.
  • Practical tips and key words in industry to apply to your project.
  • Drug Discovery Guidelines: how to apply them to your project

If you want to find out how to run a screening assay for your target and design critical paths to advance your compounds, this workshop is for you!
