All courses within this certificate program are offered entirely in an online asynchronous format. Online classes will have pre-recorded lectures each week and guided assignments from the instructor. 

ADMET Process

 

The ADMET processes – Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, and Toxicology – form one of the foundations of all modern drug discovery and development. It has been reported that 50% of drug failures in development and clinical trials are due to poor ADMET properties. In order to minimize these costly failures, drug discovery and development has shifted to examining and optimizing these properties as early as possible. Virtually every organization that develops pharmaceutical solutions to health or agricultural concerns require scientific and regulatory professionals who possess a complete understanding of the elements of ADMET. 


Program Overview


 

The specialized certificate in ADMET Processes trains scientific professionals how to incorporate ADMET concepts into their research and development projects by teaching practical application of AMET principles and present case studies that provide successful solutions to the R&D challenge.
