A LABORATORY OF MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY - SYNTHESIS, METHODS AND CATALYSIS
The Institute for Drug Research, School of Pharmacy
Campus Ein-Karem, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Jerusalem 91120, ISRAEL
The School of Pharmacy, in recognition of the importance and significance of Drug Research and Development in Israel, and to prepare for scientific and infrastructural future challenges within the Biopharmaceutical Industry, recently founded the Institute for Drug Research (IDR). The Institute brings together 30 researchers from a wide range of disciplines relevant to drug development:
Medicinal Chemistry: The synthesis and isolation of new materials with biological activity (potential drug candidates); computerized design of new drugs, and mechanisms of biological analysis of materials.
Pharmaceutical Sciences: New Approaches for the development and targeting of drugs (drug delivery), pre-clinical and clinical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic study, genetic therapy, development of innovative medicines and clinical pharmacology research.
Pharmacology: The investigation of the structure and function of drugs, the aging processes, mechanisms of allergy and diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, neurodegenerative, brain damage, diabetes and addictions to drugs and alcohol, and developing new drugs for these pathologies.
Our laboratory is the first in IDR to be fully dedicated to the area of synthetic medicinal chemistry, featuring top notch scientific equipment and renovated research facilities. Our team members are among the most acomplished students in the School.
