B4316: From Bench to Bedside: Translational Research for Medical Therapeutics in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 11 - 12, 2015)
How do current drugs and treatments develop? What are the steps leading from a scientific finding to a valid and useful therapy? What are some current issues and challenges in the development of new medical treatments? How do scientific research and business finance interplay to impact and influence the whole process? In this class, we’ll talk about how the drugs that make up a critical component of our healthcare come into existence. By analyzing the paths of both common and specialty therapies, for the common malady to novel treatments for cancer, such as cellular therapy, we will discuss the many different elements and factors in discovering a potential solution and bringing it to a patient. We’ll talk about difficulties stemming from the institutional design of the medical system such as clinical trials as well as different nonmedical issues that impact our potential to deliver the best treatments possible. Afterwards, we will debate topics of interest and issues such as policy, patents, and ethics.
