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. The 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:
• Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
• Clinical Trials, Translational Biomedical Research,
and Bioequivalence Studies
• Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders: Cell Biology
• Genes and Genomics
• Infectious Diseases
• Medicinal Chemistry
• Molecular Biology
• Molecular Immunology
• Molecular Oncology
• Molecular Pharmacology
• Neurosciences
• Proteins and Proteomics
• Stem Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering
• Structural Biology
