Drug Exploration

Groningen University Institute for Drug Exploration (GUIDE) its main asset is the integration of clinical, biomedical and pharmaceutical research, which promotes the education of researchers with a keen eye on the complete spectrum of biomedical research in a unique research and teaching environment: from bed to bench to drugs.

New insight into the pathophysiology of a selected number of diseases leads to the development of new drugs and/or treatment options (from bench to bed). Alternatively, patient-oriented research is structured in such a way that this leads to new pathophysiological concepts (from bed to bench). This basic philosophy starts from the idea that new concepts for treatment of diseases are most fruitfully initiated and explored in 8 focussed programs by combining knowledge concerning the pathophysiology of a collection of related diseases with the knowledge concerning drugs.
