Learn more about this group by contacting Dr. Eugene Douglass (Eugene.Douglass@uga.edu) or visiting the Center for Drug Discovery website.
Drug discovery and development involves identifying new drug targets, synthesis of new chemical or biological entities, preclinical evaluations, and formulation development to maximize therapeutic potential. Members of this multidisciplinary group cover the full spectrum of the drug discovery and development process including areas such as pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion), biopharmaceutics (drug transporters), drug analysis, toxicology, and novel drug formulations and delivery (e.g. liposomes, nanoparticles, and gene delivery).
