[new drugs]

Drug discovery and development is a multi-step, interdisciplinary process that easily can take over a decade. People outside of the drug discovery and development process often ask why? Why does it take so long to move a new therapeutic idea into the clinic to benefit patients? Why can't it happen sooner?

You are invited to a panel discussion, led by the Griffith Insitute for Drug Discovery. Join with chemists, biologists and developers working on solving some of the most troubling and widespread diseases on the globe, to discuss the many factors that influence how fast a drug candidate progresses through development towards the clinic and into the market.

WHERE: QCA Lecture Theatre and Gallery Building - S05
             South Bank Campus
             Griffith University
WHEN:   Tuesday 21 May 2019
TIME:     5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
