Stages of Drug Discovery and Development
Target Discovery: Identification and Validation Identifying a potential drug target for a disease or condition for which no treatment exists or current therapies are inadequate
Preclinical ResearchAnimal studies plus cellular and biochemical assays to characterize the pharmacology of lead drug candidates including toxicity, PK/PD, ADME, and NOAEL
Process Development and Scale-UpProduction of increasing quantities of a candidate drug from discovery through development, trials, and approval
Lead Discovery: Screening and Optimization Therapeutic lead identification and screening to determine biological activity, selectivity, toxicity, and mechanism of action
Clinical ResearchTesting of a new drug candidate in humans to evaluate the safety and efficacy in treating or preventing a disease, dosing regimen, and side effects
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Release TestingLarge-scale manufacturing of a new drug, cGMP process control, product QC, and stability testing of the finished product
Biomarker DiscoveryThe use of biomarkers across drug discovery and development and into the clinic is key to enabling close monitoring of a drug candidate’s effects. Biomarkers can range from specific molecules such as a protein, a gene sequence, or expressed RNA to physiological parameters such as blood pressure. Biomarkers may be detected in a specific location or tissue or in plasma and other bodily fluids.
Biochemical and Cellular AssaysBiochemical and cellular pharmacology teams develop and validate assays to support research across drug discovery and development. These assays range from discovery approaches with high sample throughput to high-content analysis to gain an understanding of biological response both in vitro and in vivo.
