The epic journey to better medicines
By UCSF School of Pharmacy Editorial Staff / Wed Jun 13, 2018
It’s a long and difficult journey from drug discovery to precise, safe, and effective therapeutics. UCSF School of Pharmacy scientists, across all three departments and in widely divergent fields, are continually questioning the status quo at key points along this route.
Read how 15 of these scientists are pushing back the frontier of disease prevention and treatment in five research areas, in the cover story of the latest issue of UCSF Magazine, page 36. The story is also posted on the magazine’s Medium page: “2018: A Drug Odyssey.” It appears as well on the UCSF website.
