15th Annual Drug Discovery Leaders Summit

02 Jun 2014 - 03 Jun 2014 - Geneva, Switzerland

Bookmark and Share

Attend Europe’s leading networking and discussion platform for drug discovery professionals.  

Meet 250 senior-level delegates from global pharmaceutical organisations, leading biotechs and esteemed academic institutions.

Hear 60 expert speakers discuss the pressing challenges in medicinal chemistry, compound screening, target-based discovery and innovation access.

Discuss the viability of the latest discovery trends, including phenotypic screening, epigenetic drug discovery, stem cell technology and nanoengineering.

Tailor your congress experience – attend any sessions from the following six streams:

- R&D Models For The Future

- Screening & Assays: Enabling Technologies

- Target Based Discovery

- Supporting Innovation: Data & Information Management

- Discovery Chemistry: Latest Case Studies

- Drug Design: Novel Approaches

The Summit is co-located with the 6th Annual Drug Development Congress - an executive level event focusing on predictive science and translational medicine.

The Drug Discovery Summit is Europe’s leading networking and discussion platform for pharmaceutical professionals. Attending this long-established event gives delegates the opportunity to:

Hear from and meet with the people shaping the pharmaceutical landscape. Previous attendees include: Vice President New Frontier Science Europe, Takeda; Vice President and Venture Leader, Janssen R&D; Vice President & Global Head, Reagents & Assay Development, AstraZeneca.

Discuss the latest discovery innovations, including 3D cell based assays, advances in nanoengineering and iPSCs for compound screening.

Discover collaborative solutions to discovery challenges. This summit brings together a host of experts to compare methods for utilising new screening technology, validating novel drug targets, improving lead optimisation and making better use of discovery data.

Enjoy unparalleled networking opportunities. The two-day congress format combines dedicated networking breaks, pre-organised 1-2-1 meetings and our popular drinks reception. The exhibition hall and poster presentation spaces offer a relaxed and professional environment for discussion.

Tailor the congress experience.  The six stream agenda offers industry updates for those working in discovery technology, target-based discovery, discovery information, discovery chemistry, drug design, research strategy and open innovation.
