In order to accelerate anti-cancer drug development, the DAPC is jointly launched by the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI) and National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS) on August 1, 2013. The aim of DAPC is to provide a state-of-the-art platform for teaching and research communities on pharmacokinetics and drug analysis which are one of the core research tools in drug discovery pipeline and personalized medicine.
The DAPC has the capability to support preclinical and clinical studies through the analysis of anticancer drugs along with modeling of pharmacokinetics with pharmacodynamics and pharmacogenetics to optimize therapeutic efficacy and minimize drug toxicities in patients. In addition, various studies can be designed for the in vitro characterization of drug-drug interaction and metabolism.
