Careers in Translational Drug Discovery
Careers in translational drug discovery offer exciting opportunities to apply your biomedical research training to the development of much-needed treatments for disease. While pursuing a career in drug discovery in the past has meant exiting the academic setting to join the pharmaceutical industry, this is no longer the case. Translational drug discovery efforts are occurring in a variety of settings including those in academia and the government.
This Neuroscience 2017 event provides an overview of career opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, academic drug discovery centers, and NIH Intramural Research Programs and showcases examples of how basic and innovative biology can be turned into a drug discovery program in a variety of research settings that will lead to new medicines for patients who need them.
