UICentre is hosting a Drug Discovery Workshop for all researchers interested in learning more about the drug discovery process from industry experts.  The workshop takes two case studies in drug discovery, both targeting kinases; however, the strategies employed are common across all targets in small molecule drug discovery. The workshop will also provide information on resources available at UIC from both UICentre and RRC to assist and enable drug discovery and entrepreneurial researchers on campus.
