Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research


The Division of Toxicology of the LACDR has three major research areas: drug safety sciences and cancer drug target discovery, and additionally Computational Biology. Our research and teaching activities are strongly integrated around these topics.

Research Theme: Drug Safety Sciences

Adverse drug reactions are often poorly understood and difficult to predict. This represents a major pitfall in the drug development pipeline.

Research Theme: Cancer Drug Target Discovery

In this research theme we focus on unraveling the mechanisms of cancer drug resistance and the mechanisms of metastasis in order to develop optimal candidate drugs targets.
