Since the Human Genome Project, our understanding of the genetic basis of human diseases has grown by leaps and bounds. But how close are we to translating these genetic insights into much-needed therapies? Physician-scientist Anna Greka and chemist Florence Wagner will reflect on how new tools and approaches in biology and chemistry have helped unlock new paradigms for the development of medicines in the genomic era, and look ahead to what the future might hold.
“From Genes to Mechanisms to Medicines: Reflections on the past, present, and future of drug discovery”
A Broad@15 lecture by Anna Greka and Florence Wagner
Thursday, November 14
