Many highly-successful MBI graduates have made the leap from academia to industry. Nevertheless, the world of biotech, and the drug discovery pipeline in particular, can be a mystery to students as they consider their career options. The MBI is working with researchers at Amgen to illuminate the process by which new drug targets are identified, drugs tested and brought to market. This 5-day workshop, lead by Amgen researchers, will cover key aspects of the drug discovery process, including:
\tIdentifying therapeutic targets
\tIncreasing efficacy and safety
\tProcess development, devices and manufacturing
\tCase studies from bench to clinic
The workshop will culminate with a site-visit to the Amgen campus in Thousand Oaks.
Space is very limited on the Amgen site visit. Registrants who attend all 4 days of the workshop at UCLA will be offered priority.
