The scientific sessions will include Innovations in Assay Development, Oncology Drug Discovery, Target Validation and Engineered Proteins for Therapy.

We are delighted to introduce three new science sessions this year, which will cover cutting-edge thinking in several therapeutic and discovery opportunities and techniques - Phenotypic Discovery & Cellular Imaging, Neuroscience Drug Targets, and Chemistry Innovation in Lead Discovery.

Another exciting addition to our conference this year is a series of Core Technologies Workshops. These will provide a more informal, interactive environment for you to discuss key issues and future directions in Innovative Automation, Complex Data, Sample Management, and Safety & Metabolism Screening, in workshops coordinated by leaders in the fields.

ELRIG Drug Discovery 2014 will include a high quality scientific poster session, networking opportunities, and an extensive vendor exhibition.

Each year, the ELRIG Drug Discovery conference provides a fantastic communication and learning opportunity for scientists engaged in research fields across drug discovery, bringing together  Academia, Biotech, Vendors, & Pharma, into a single community of scientists. It is now well established as the leading annual drug discovery event held in the UK.

Food Triggers Creation of Regulatory T Cells
IBS researchers document how normal diet establishes immune tolerance conditions in the small intestine.
Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules
Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.
Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer
From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
