You will become familiar with opportunities and challenges of drug discovery and development, from the identifi- cation of potential targets over target validation, clinical trials, regulatory approvals and potential applications to the market. You will get insights into industrial research and entrepreneurial thinking by discussing value chains. The lectures will also address necessity and opportunities of interdisciplinary projects for breakthroughs in drug discovery and development. As CEO of Helmholtz Center Munich and Professor at TUM I warmly welcome all members of the Center and HELENA as well as TUM students to participate. After the lectures, I would like to invite you for further discussions with drinks and snacks. The lecture on July 18 will be concluded by the event ‚Helmholtz & Music‘.
