Know your drugs: A primer for chemical and life science professionals is ACS Webinars topic

WASHINGTON, March 21, 2011 The modern drug discovery process is the topic of the next in a series of American Chemical Society (ACS) Webinars for scientists and chemical professionals.

Scheduled for Thursday, March 24, from 2 3 p.m., EDT, the free webinar features Terry Kenakin, a Director of Platform Technology Sciences at GlaxoSmithKline Research and Development in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

Participants will learn:

  • Stages of the modern drug discovery process
  • How pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are used to guide discovery
  • The primary assays used in discovery and development to guide optimization of efficacy and PK properties, what these assays give you, and how to interpret the data
