A major goal of the Drug Discovery Network Zurich (DDNZ) is to bring together Zurich-based researchers from backgrounds spanning basic research to clinical research in order to help them advance their research towards translational applications. This may comprise, but is not limited to, developing new methods for drug discovery, testing new compounds in translational medicine and sharing technical expertise or capacity.
“The DDNZ will hold another one-day symposium in the ETH Main Building of posters, short talks and plenary lectures on February 10th 2017 on “Drug Re-purposing in the Academic Environment”. Drug re-purposing offers opportunities and challenges to academics in many areas from chemistry through biology, pharmacology and translational research. We believe that this is an excellent theme to bring members of the DDNZ together.
