The Institute for Drug Research is comprised of a unique collection of accomplished scientists - national research and drug development. Research and experimentation take place in the researcher's laboratories at the School. The Institute encourages interdisciplinary research for drug development, from drug forecasting and planning, to chemical synthesis, pharmacological and toxicological examination of the proposed remedy to the choice of optimal ways of providing drug and tracing removal from the body.
