Drug Development and Neurohealth

***Awarded 'Top Rated Programme' label, Keuzegids 2019***


Which brain drugs does our society need most? Do drugs work the same in everyone? What makes someone vulnerable to brain diseases? What makes them receptive to drug effects? Can we predict drug effects in the brain? Can diet be as effective as drug treatment? How do we translate new R&D knowledge into a start-up company? Drug Development and Neurohealth provides a theoretical background and practical experience in pharmaceutical drug research & development, medicinal nutrition and personalised healthcare. You will interact with industry and regulatory agencies. The overarching theme is the pipeline of drug research & development from design of the molecule to its applications in healthcare settings.
