ELRIG - Drug Discovery 2014

02 Sep 2014 - 03 Sep 2014 - Manchester, UK

Bookmark and Share

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.
