WSU CPPS Drug Discovery and Evaluation Workshop
August 9 - August 11
The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS) Drug Discovery and Evaluation Workshop (DDEW) at Washington State University provides an inside look at how drugs are discovered and developed, from finding a target to evaluation of drug safety and efficacy in the clinic. This workshop is intended to provide a broad overview of the drug discovery process for undergraduate- and masters-level students who are interested in learning how drugs are designed, developed, evaluated, and translated into medicines.
The Drug Discovery and Evaluation Workshop is a three-day event beginning on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, and continuing to Friday, August 11, 2023. Day 1 will be broken up into morning informational sessions, afternoon research and core facility lab tours, followed by afternoon informational sessions. Optional Day 2 (Thursday, August 12) is the CPPS Industry Advisory Board (IAB) meeting. This is a unique opportunity for students to hear from, and interact with, representatives from many of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, including Pfizer, Merck, Genentech, Bristol Myers Squibb, Gilead, Takeda, and more. Optional Day 3 (Friday, August 13) is the CPPS “Research Day.” Research day highlights the research being performed throughout the CPPS. The day consists of oral and poster presentations from WSU CPPS Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) awardees, graduate students, and post docs.
