Very good course

Ver y useful course to learn the basics of drug discovery. Needs to be updated, most of the slides were outdated.

Learned the trend of latest Pharma industry and review the basic concepts in drug discovery

The course presents the basic concepts of DD and allows familiarization with the technical terms of the field. I strongly recommend for those who want to understand a little bit of DD.
