Learning objectives
The objective of this course is to provide knowledge on: i) the path leading to drug development (basic research, pre-clinical trials and clinical studies); ii) molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying drugs activity; iii) pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics; iv) gene therapy; v) new molecular medications (RNA drugs); vi) role of stem cells in drug discovery and therapy. The course will also provide in addition to theoretical content a practical approach to the topics, with a specific focus on the design of experimental protocols and the use of models.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of this course, the student will know how new molecules with therapeutic activity can be developed and will have knowledge about the molecular mechanisms underlying drug properties.
