Academic Pharma

Research and Discovery

Fundamental biomedical and chemical research could lead to new candidate medicinal products.

This research involves screening of compound libraries in which hits are further characterised, researched and developed. A better understanding of diseases, pathways involved and working mechanisms of therapies will also give new insights into treatment options for which new medicinal products could be developed.

Not every compound will be suitable to develop further in an academic setting. The Academic Pharma drug development board has the goal to review and evaluate scientific, clinical and technical issues related to the discovery and development of candidate medicinal products. The board provides recommendations to investigators who submitted requests or proposals for new candidates medicinal products.
