PC 822 - Drug Discovery for Neurodegenerative Disorders

The goal of this course is to examine the drug discovery process for neurodegenerative disorders. Using Alzheimer’s disease as a model, we will examine the diagnosis, epidemiology, current therapeutics, and strategies for drug discovery. The in vitro disease models with resulting outcomes in translational studies will be discussed. A the end of the course students will utilize NIH guidelines to develop their own proposal for future studies.
