21 day online workshop on Drug Discovery & Development organised at UoH

The workshop on “Drug Discovery & Development 2022”, was organized by FABA (Federation of Asian Biotech Associations) Academy (http://biofaba.org.in/) in collaboration with the Science Gurus (http://sciencegurus.org/), a US-based non profit organization and the University of Hyderabad (UoH) (https://uohyd.ac.in/) from 15 March – 4 April 2022, provided a comprehensive overview on all these aspects of the drug discovery and development processes including drug repurposing and intellectual property.

The takeaways from the workshop were:

  • The Indian Pharma and Biopharma industries need to focus on an entrepreneurial, risk-taking and collaborative mindset towards path-breaking innovations.
  • Address the regulatory and clinical trial challenges, in order to speed up innovative drug discoveries and bring novel medicines to the Indian and global markets.
  • Young scientists need to explore scientific challenges as opportunities to build their careers as well as contribute to the Country’s progress in science and innovation.
