SPONSORED BY CHEMICAL COMPUTING GROUP

SMi are proud to present the 13th annual Advances and Progress in Drug Design conference, convening in Central London on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 February 2014. This exciting event will focus on new approaches and will offer attendees the chance to hear from leading industry experts on lead optimisation strategies, SBDD and FBDD. 

Past events have received positive feedback from the industry including ‘Well selected talks, stimulating atmosphere’ – Sanofi, ‘Very good interactive meeting, overall excellent’ – Pfizer and ‘a very good meeting – right number of people’ - AstraZeneca

Advances and Progress in Drug Design Conference will build on the success of our previous events and bring together a unique mix of senior executives from all over industry and academia and will be an unrivalled forum for problem-solving discussion and debate. 

Benefits of Attending:

Understand pharma's current and future drug design strategies and highlight the challenges the industry is currently facing

Explore the latest approaches in structure-based drug design

Evaluate lead optimisation strategies

Consider the latest in fragment based drug discovery as the future of drug design

Linking HTS and FBDD - examining alternative approaches in drug discovery

Participate in two post conference interactive workshops hosted by Vernalis on New Approaches in ‘Structure Based Design’, and the 2nd hosted by The Research Network on ‘Chemically Modified Biologicals’

Ample opportunity for peer to peer networking with two morning coffee breaks, two networking lunches, two afternoon tea sessions and a networking drinks reception hosted by Chemical Computing Group on end of day one.
