Keynote presentations will be given by Dr Steve Rees, Vice-President of Screening Sciences and Sample Management at AstraZeneca, and Section President of SLAS (‘Collaborative Models for Lead Discovery’), and Dr Chris Moxham, Associate Vice President at ImClone Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eli Lilly and Company (‘Eli Lilly and Co.'s Open Innovation Drug Discovery Initiative’). The keynote speakers will also close the meeting with a debate on ‘The Evolving Landscape for Drug Discovery’.

A number of vendor workshop sessions will be held during the event, as well as lunchtime ‘Informatics: Making Knowledge from Laboratory Data’ Seminars on both days of the event. The lunchtime Informatics Seminars are: ‘How best to enable externalisation of drug discovery’ and ‘Knowledge at your finger tips’.
Workshop sessions include: ‘Deeper insights – better prediction of drug safety and efficacy’ from GE Healthcare Drug Discovery Suite; and ‘Early drug de-risking with 3D-cell-culture systems’ with InSphero.

Drug Discovery 2012 is to be held on 5th – 6th September 2012 at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, and features over 100 exhibitor booths, an Innovation Zone, Media Area, Careers Zone and Dragons Den. Registration for the event is free and over 1,000 delegates are expected to attend.
