KGI’s SURE drug discovery program is designed for ambitious high school and undergraduate college students to learn about drug development process from discovery to FDA approval. The students also learn about the benefits of drug repurposing, which is discovering new uses for already FDA approved drugs. In addition to their work on laboratory projects, the students have an opportunity to take a full-length course on drug discovery and development taught by the KGI drug discovery faculty.
