Drug Development


Drug development cluster is a multidisciplinary research group originating from Faculty of Medicines Universitas Indonesia, collaborates into developing lead compounds as candidates of drugs. The search for the new drug candidate we use are through genomic and of non-genomic approach. Lead compounds tested can be obtained from medicinal plants or from the known synthetic compounds that will be tested for certain desired mechanism of actions. The testing of new drug candidates generally involves the testing of compounds to in vitro target, followed by animal models for the pharmacology and toxicity testing. Afterwards, clinical trials in healthy volunteers and patients will be conducted to prove the efficacy and safety of the drug candidates.



Being an excellent research cluster in Indonesia that leading-edge research in field of drug development.


  1. Improving the quality and quantity of translational research which is focused on the research activities in drug discovery and drug delivery system
  2. Developing research products (drugs and herbal medicine) which could be applied for patent and meet the drug’s market, as well as improving the amount of research publication“
  3. “Improving networking, national and international research collaborations that lead to the high quality research findings”
