This conference will amalgamate the cutting-edge techniques used by leading research institutes. With access to all three tracks, Drug Discovery & Development, Advances in Genomics & Informatics and Advances in Bioanalysis, this conference aims to provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of the essential techniques required to investigate current scientific advancements.

The Flow Chemistry workshop will be taking place prior to this conference.

Drug Discovery & Development
In the ever-expanding field of drug development it is vital for scientists to remain at the forefront of drug discovery and refinement in order to keep up with consumerist demand.  With a need for improved specificity and fewer side-effects in patients, our speakers will be discussing the sophisticated details of the fundamental techniques required to develop the most successful drugs.

This branch of analytical chemistry is essential in obtaining accurate quantitative measurements of drug metabolites and macromolecules.  Keynote presentations will talk about innovative analytical methods, explain their movement towards a more reliable, rational approach of analysis, and describe the considerable impact these techniques can have on the overall success of pharmaceutical research.

Advances in Genomics and Informatics
Despite the remarkable feat of sequencing the human genome nearly ten years ago, the sheer volume of information that DNA provides us with requires continual advancements in the way we unravel and analyse the data.  Our speakers will address numerous methods of analysis, particularly focusing on the exciting areas of epigenetics, miRNA and Next-Gen Sequencing.
For more information on the stimulating research involved in epigenetics, miRNA and Next-Gen Sequencing, please view the information on the Genomics Research Asia conference being held later this year.
