Innovations and technology are being developed every day. Therefore, ECDD decides to keep up by forming collaborations between groups of researchers with a specialty in biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical, and human physiology from Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodhi Hospital and Faculty of Science Mahidol University. The focus of ECDD is discovering, researching and developing new target leads for the treatment of pre-clinical/ or clinical study in the areas of cancer, neurological disorder, infectious diseases, metabolic diseases and genetic diseases. ECDD brings together expertise researchers in all phases of drug discovery and development including:

  • Target Selection
  • Lead Discovery
  • Compound Management
  • Medicinal Chemistry, ADMET (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, and Toxicity)
  • Pre-clinical and Clinical Trial
Drug Discovery Process

Our research team involved in highly fundamental projects to understand the molecular mechanisms related to identify potential targets, pharmacological and pharmacokinetic characterization of drug candidates, up to pre-clinical study.

Collaboration model

ECDD is actively involved in developing model for collaboration with other institutes both nationally and internationally including

  • Academic laboratories
  • Non-profits
  • Government-funded labs
  • Small biotech/biopharma companies
  • Pharmaceutical industry
