NIH White Paper – Quantitative & Systems Pharmacology in the Post-genomic Era
In 2008 and 2010, the NIH hosted workshops to examine whether developing and utilizing quantitative, systems approaches to pharmacology research could potentially improve the success rate in drug discovery and development. To address the opportunities, needs and challenges of the emerging discipline of quantitative and systems pharmacology, a committee of 2010 workshop participants developed the attached white paper, “Quantitative and Systems Pharmacology in the Post-genomic Era: New Approaches to Discovering Drugs and Understanding Therapeutic Mechanisms. The paper can be found here.
