Early Drug Discovery Doctoral Program (EDDDP)

The Early Drug Discovery Doctoral Program (EDDDP) of the Center of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Vienna aims to provide state-of-the-art education in the field of preclinical drug research.

A major focus is devoted to developing methods for

i)   computer-assisted identification of new hit compounds from natural sources affecting key components
     of the metabolic network
ii)  characterizing their pharmacological/toxicological profile in order to assess their molecular mode of action, and
iii) exploring their use as tool compounds in animal models of metabolic disease for target-oriented interventions.

The PhD students will highly benefit from working in strongly interconnected projects. Methods offered range from in silico screening up to in vivo experiments, thus providing a unique opportunity to be exposed to all major techniques pursued in early drug discovery programs.
