Description

The Centre for Drug Candidate Optimisation (CDCO) is a collaborative research centre based within the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences that provides biopharmaceutical lead optimisation expertise to academic, commercial and not-for-profit drug discovery programs.
Drug candidate optimisation is a key component of modern drug discovery, playing a critical role in compound design, selection and progression. Optimising physicochemical, metabolism and pharmacokinetic properties of drug candidates is essential in guiding medicinal chemistry, developing formulation and delivery strategies, and informing dosing regimens to ensure safety and efficacy.
