Centre for Drug Discovery and Pharmaceutical Product Development

«The discovery and development of novel treatment options for patients is our passion.»

Prof. Dr. Rainer Riedl, Head of centre

With our complementary key competences we cover the entire value chain from drug discovery to medicinal chemistry optimization, the pharmacological testing and final drug formulation. This allows us to tackle complex research and development projects with the goal to generate innovative pharmaceutical products guided by high quality and documentation processes.
