Molecular medicine is an emerging field that deals with the advances in molecular and cellular biology to characterize how a normal cellular process fails or succeeds in subverting a disease. New knowledge in the field of molecular pharmacology, genomics, immunology, and cell biology is expanding the scope of the innumerable inconceivable possibilities in search for development of new drugs and mechanism-based therapies.
In recent years, there has been enormous growth in the understanding of biological processes at the molecular level. This development is continuous with sharp focus on the essential molecular mechanisms underlying the normal functioning of the cells, tissues, and organisms. Molecular biological methods can be used to discover the mechanism of pathological processes, leading to the development of new therapeutic concepts based on the understanding of molecular medicine.
The following aspects of molecular medicine and drug discovery science will be covered in this symposium:
