Discovering New Drugs: Looking for Leads in Nature
Presented by Charles Veltri, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Pharmaceutical Sciences
Midwestern University College of Pharmacy-Glendale

The Sonoran Desert provides more than just a picturesque backdrop for visitors - it
may contain elements of the next generation of human drug therapy. Join Dr.
Veltri as he explains the importance of studying "drug leads" and how
naturally-occurring elements in nature present themselves. After this lecture, you
will walk through the desert with a whole new perspective.
