Gain a basic understanding of the introductory concepts and use of toxicology in drug discovery and development. The basic principles of toxicology will be presented as they relate to the assessment of drug safety from the initial selection of a drug for development through the registration of a drug for human use and post-marketing surveillance. The principles and applications of toxicology will be taught through the use of actual examples encountered in the drug discovery and development process to help you deal with toxicology issues you may encounter in the work environment. Chemists, biologists, clinicians and others who are involved in pharmaceutical research and development would benefit from this course.
Goals and Objectives:
This course will provide an overview and practical applications of the discipline of toxicology to studying and understanding the adverse effects of chemicals on biological systems. The fundamentals taught in this course can be applied to the development of small molecules as well as biologics.
