  • Overview

    The discovery of a new use for a failed or existing drug has often been entirely serendipitous: a drug in development to treat angina failed, but became famous as Viagra when some of the test subjects reported interesting side effects. There are other notable examples, and now scientists are beginning to repurpose drugs in a more systematic way. How is drug repurposing research carried out, why is it important, and what are the hurdles to bringing these new uses to market? Hosted by Dr. Bruce Bloom.
