In this section, your ideas for IYC2011 can start to become reality. Here, you can submit activities for consideration and, after a short review, they will be listed below and any related events will populate the IYC calendar. Activities listed here have a clearly defined theme and describe how, when, and where they will take place.

If you are not quite ready to submit a plan, keep working at it and come back soon. And remember, you can always browse and search this forum to find out what others are planning and even add your own comments to the discussion.

Me Too Drugs: R&D Innovations or Imitations? Tanya Fogg   |   added on Mar 17, 2011    |    United States A “me too” drug is similar in chemical structure or has the same mechanism of action as the protype. According to the 2004 FDA report, only about one-third of the drug license application approvals over the preceding eight years were considered as ‘new’.
Topic: drug development, drug, drug prototype Audience: pharmacist, students, chemists, general public, professors, research scientists
