Introduction to drug discovery

Welcome to Week 4. This week we will talk about how to identify and optimize a molecule drug.

Drug discovery is a huge topic. Instead, we will use several cases to demonstrate how a drug is discovered. You will learn the basics of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and its receptor, EGFR. Also, you will learn about the current development of EGFR-related drugs.
