The doctoral program Drug Discovery at the University of Zurich under the umbrella of the Life Science Graduate School Zurich includes a written dissertation about an independent scientific research project.
In this PhD project we will use artificial intelligence (machine learning) to rationally explore a defined chemical space. This project will consist of two steps. Step one focuses on two relevant protein targets in drug discovery (the cannabinoid receptors). Step two consists of scaling successful tools up to cover all relevant proteins (i.e. with enough ligands) in the entire ChEMBL database.
Ramblings of a Drug Discovery PhD student who should really be in the lab or writing her thesis. Scroll down to content. Posts. Posted on June 29, 2020 June 13, 2020. Software and Apps that helped me during my PhD. There are so many apps and types of software available to help make PhD life that little bit easier. In this post I will share some of the most helpful ones. Image of a laptop and.
PhD Program Uniquely Positioned to Bridge the Chemical and Biological Worlds Chemical Biology and Medicinal Chemistry (CBMC) is a dynamic, multifaceted graduate program dedicated to improving human health through research leading to new concepts for the design and development of therapeutic and diagnostic agents.
This course covers the drug discovery and design techniques used in the pharmaceutical industry. You’ll study topics such as pharmacology, toxicology and genomics as you learn how target molecules to treat specific diseases are identified, characterised and optimised for potential clinical trials.
Antibiotic Drug Discovery Potentiation of the quinolones and targeting the initiation of DNA replication This thesis has been submitted to the PhD School of The Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, 28. February 2018.
A thesis submitted on March, 2014 for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Abstract Drug repositioning is the discovery of new indications for approved or failed drugs. This practice is commonly done within the drug discovery process in order to ad-just or expand the application line of an active molecule. Nowadays, an increasing number of computational methodologies aim at predicting.
The division of BioTherapeutics Drug Discovery and Safety (DDS) is part of the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR). Our institute is a centre of excellence for multidisciplinary research on drug discovery and development. Leiden University consistently ranks within the top-20 world-wide within the subject-based QS Ranking in Pharmacology and Pharmacy. At LACDR, we develop.
PhD fellowship in Peptide Drug Discovery at Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology. Write a PhD thesis on the grounds of your research project; Required qualifications As an applicant you must have: qualifications corresponding to a master’s degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics or related areas prior to the starting date. Fluency in English and excellent communication skills.
This programme provides a broad overview of the drug discovery and development process and is designed for graduates in science-based subjects as preparation for either PhD-level research or a career in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and CRO industries or with a government regulatory body.
In the discovery phase, work is often conducted in research groups that include experts in pharmacology and medicinal chemistry, among others. With Drug Discovery as a basis, you can continue in a professional position within drug discovery of the pharmaceutical industry, or in a PhD programme at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
PhD candidate AI for Drug Discovery. Project description Artificial intelligence has emerged as a game-changer in the life sciences. Using machine learning, molecules can be generated in silico, allowing the extremely high throughput exploration of this massive chemical space. Subsequently, using machine learning, these generated molecules can be mined for new drugs for existing diseases.
Drug discovery can be lengthy, complicated and requires extensive resources. Working in partnership with the pharmacy and chemistry departments, Dr. Koperniku explored access to pharmaceutically relevant small molecules. Her work advances the optimization of pharmaceuticals and informs improved patient care. Her past and future dedication is to serve humanity. 2019: Dr. Wang found out that.
This programme teaches students the latest methodologies and approaches and covers all aspects of drug design: drug discovery, computational and structural biology, screening, assay development, medicinal chemistry, and most importantly the industrial practices involved in modern drug design technology.
Development of novel phospho-amino acid prodrugs as powerful tools in drug discovery. PhD Thesis, Cardiff University.Advancing pharmaceutical research in the country, a university in Ajman is now offering a master's programme for drug discovery and development. The College of Pharmacy of Gulf Medical University.The thesis then focuses on the establishment and validation of a chronic mouse model of PTSD (Chapter 2) and PTSD with comorbid repetitive mild TBI (Chapters 3). Chapter 4 investigates the key molecular mechanisms implicated in PTSD pathophysiology in a mouse model. Finally, the outcomes of a pilot treatment study are presented in Chapter 5.
