Description of Biomolecular Analysis: From Method Development to Clinic

Advertisement

Integrated bioanalytics represent a variety of important methods to acquire reliable information about the state of a biological system, e.g. by analysing tissues, body fluids (blood, plasma, urine, sweat…).

Common used methods include gas chromatography, HPLC, capillary electrophoresis etc. Bioanalytics thus pose an important tool to follow the physiological course of a new compound during drug development and define the PK/PD profile of the drug candidate.

This course deals with the application of bioanalytical methodology, while emphasis is given to sample preparation, small molecule strategies and biopharmaceuticals.

As compounds differ in their physic-chemical properties, appropriate analysis strategies are required for sample separation, pre-treatment, detection methodology and validation.

Students will acquire the necessary knowledge to understand the most common methods applied and will be able to define the basic needs to develop, prepare and perform integrated biomolecular analyses, as well as to review and evaluate studies in the bioanalytic field.

Case studies will support the learning outcome and GLP and authoritative guideline will be discussed.
