Science Week Talk: What can you do to discover new drugs?


Monday, March 11, 2013
10:00 to 11:30

Talk Description


I will discuss how the current drug discovery paradigm evolved and why it is failing. We will examine how changes to this strategy, based on screening in a biological context are essential if this bottleneck is to be overcome.


Speaker


Terry Hébert is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at McGill University. He currently holds a Chercheur National Award from the FRSQ. His current focus is on the ontogeny, formation and trafficking of GPCR-based signalling complexes with a view toward understanding the architecture, wiring and integration of individual signalling pathways. Translated into English- this means he is interested in understanding how cells talk to one another in the heart. He has developed new methods for in cellulo measures of protein/protein interactions and is highly involved in the development of new multiplexed signaling assays for drug discovery.


Teachers are strongly encouraged to bring their students to this presentation.
