Tomorrow’s Therapeutics

Drug discovery, development, delivery and utilization research at PCOM.

Drug Discovery, Development, Delivery and Utilization

The overarching goal of pharmaceutical research is to design and test drugs with increased efficacy and specificity to reduce side effects. The first step in drug discovery is the identification of potential molecular targets that can be stimulated or repressed for therapeutic purposes. PCOM’s interdisciplinary research groups focus on the development of novel pharmacological approaches to treating a wide range of disorders and diseases. Our researchers collaborate with a bioinformatics specialist to integrate and interpret complex molecular interactions and a data analyst to evaluate the impact of healthcare policies on medication utilization and cost-effectiveness.
