Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Drug Development, Pharmacokinetics and Imaging module is a one-week module of the MSc in Experimental Therapeutics programme. Offered by the Department of Oncology and the Department for Continuing Education’s CPD Centre, the module will be led by Prof Stefan Knapp, and will feature face-to-face lectures and tutorials from some of Oxford's leading clinicians and scientists.

The module can also be taken as a stand-alone short course. It includes group work, discussions, guest lectures, and interaction and feedback with tutors and lecturers.

For more information about what the course includes and how to apply please see below.

This five-day course touches on the basic principles of designing and identifying new drug molecules improving their properties, and monitoring their effect in cellular model systems and in vivo. The course comprises principles of medicinal chemistry, structural biology, structure-based design, in vitro and cell based screening technology, as well as principles of pharmacokinetics and optimisation of drug in vivo properties.

The course also covers aspects of target validation and identification. Finally it explores several state-of-art imaging technologies, aiming to assess the drug distribution and activity as well as to gain a broader view of disease pathology.

The Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy course will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about and discuss the following topics:

Principles of Medicinal Chemistry

Introduction to Structural Biology and its use in rational drug design

In vitro screening technology

In silico screening

Cell based screening technology

Principles of pharmacokinetics

Optimization of inhibitor properties for in vivo use

Cellular and in vivo imaging technologies
