On Wednesday August 01, 2018, the specialized journal club entitled "Drug  Repositioning"  was held in meeting room of pharmacy school by presentation of Dr Nima Razzaghi-Asl (Associate Professor of Medicinal Chemistry), and participation of faculties of pharmacy school.


Drug repositioning is the process of discovering, validating, and marketing previously approved drugs for new indications. This technique is of high importance since it uses approved drugs as lead compounds for novel indications. Owing to this, drug repositioning significantly reduces the time and cost associated with drug discovery processes since pharmacokinetics problems are of less concern.
