19 participants attended a CRDI workshop organised in CÚRAM, the SFI Centre for Research in Medical Devices in Galway on Monday 8 April 2019. The workshop is part of the CRDI e-Learning course ‘’Case Studies in Drug Discovery & Development’ and delivered by the course coordinator, Prof David Brayden (UCD).
The workshop complemented the online material that participants had previously accessed via the CRDI Moodle online platform. Attendees discussed and critiqued material on Semaglutide, a drug originally developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
CRDI is coordinating expertise across its partner academic institutions and beyond to develop and deliver resources for research training. Development of one such resource, e-Learning, is a current priority area for CRDI. The Case Studies in Drug Discovery & Development, coordinated by Prof David Brayden (UCD), introduces the concepts involved in the drug discovery and development process in the pharmaceutical industry and provides case studies of both small molecule and biotech molecule development from discovery to market.
This CRDI course is accredited 2.5 ECTS credits in TCD and UCD. The course content will be examined thereafter by online MCQ for attendees wishing to claim ECTS credits and/or a CRDI Open Badge.
