Drug Development Today and Tomorrow

Drug Development Today and Tomorrow

Today's drug discovery process is time consuming and tremendously expensive. It can take up to 20 years and cost millions of dollars to bring a single drug candidate to market. Pharmacogenetic approaches might make this process more efficient by enabling researchers to:

  • Identify genes involved in disease
  • Understand how genes and the proteins they produce are affected by various drug candidates
  • Effectively choose target populations to be used in clinical trials
