Would you like to participate in the process involved in developing a drug from its initial design up to when it is brought onto the market? You'll need to find the best candidate and carry out animal and human testing before the drug can be approved and sold.
Do you know the process involved in bringing a tablet onto the market? It needs lots of time, investment and the effort of a lot of people. The molecule first needs to be designed and synthesised, and then the researchers need to carry out animal and human testing on it. It can then finally be produced and prescribed once it's been approved.
Once we've managed to find the drug target, why don't we try developing a drug? First we need to purify the target and research its three-dimensional structure in order to identify a drug that will interact with it. You'll need to use different techniques in order to find a drug and check that it works.
Do you want to produce a drug target against some of the symptoms of schizophrenia? We know that the enzyme known as POP is more active in people living with schizophrenia than it should be. You'll be able to manipulate bacteria in this laboratory in order to achieve the quantity of the enzyme you need.
Here you will find a protocol and a PowerPoint presentation to perform a bacterial transformation in a lab. The protocol follows a line of biomedical research focusing on the study of a possible therapeutic target that could be recognised by a drug for atherosclerosis.
This experimental protocol is the ideal opportunity for you to reproduce an experiment exactly how it is done at...
