The course will focus
on small molecule drug discovery.
Receptor theory and cell communication and signalling will be revised to

discovery process will be described and the phases of drug development discussed. A range of targets for drug discovery will be
identified and how small molecule drug affect these will be described. Issues around drug regulation will be raised.
